Let’s Celebrate!

Hello everyone and a very happy Tuesday to you all!

I am yay happy today, because my favourite artist opened her new Store on Etsy! Yes!

And she has been kind enough to offer a 30% discount too, available for followers in her Facebook group.

Of course, I had to go take a look, and I found three images there that I don’t own yet, somehow those three ended up dropping into my basket. I have idea how, it was the strangest thing! Thank  goodness for that discount code eh?! Tee hee.

Coloured Image

This awesome image is called Tori The Dragon Up and I purchased him from the brand new Conie Fong store on Etsy. (Yes I’m smiling being able to put that! Tee hee._)

To bring him to life I used my Copics and my clear Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Pen.

I absolutely adore my Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Pen. It is so SPARKLY and you can still (more or less) see my shading underneath it! Smiles.

My Celebrate sentiment is my own, computer generated one.  I thought it was fitting for celebrating the store opening, and also the card can be used for more than a  Birthday if necessary.

The frame I drew around him freehand in my Serif Craft Artist software.

The beautifully embossed star card I got from That Craft Place. I adore this card so much I bought an extra two packs, after using up my first one. Grins.

The twine is  actually  nylon string, which I picked up the last time I was at my (fairly) local hardware store.  I do that a lot, we can be in any kind of shop, it doesn’t matter what kind, and I will always still be on the look out for something which I can use in my card making. Smiles.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Hugs & Happy Crafting Everyone!

I feel immensely proud of the way I’ve brought this image to life – I think that she shows the  best of my colouring abilities to date.

My insert has been created using the same Design Paper as the main card front.

The sentiment is from  Create With TLC and as soon as I saw this one in my folder I knew it was just perfect for this sweet image.
