Before And After Birthday Balloon Boy.

Hello everyone and a very happy Monday to you all! (Is there such a thing?! Tee hee.)

Today I am bringing you an old and a new creation.

This first one was created on 24th January 2013.


This second one was created three years later on 25th January 2016.

I thought it would be really interesting to see how my colouring and style has changed in the last three years.

Particularly since I have taken the Kit and Clowder Clothing Class, and learned all about light source and shadows, which has proved invaluable!!


This gorgeous image is a really old one from Sassy Cheryl and he is called Birthday Balloon Boy.

To bring him to life I used my Copics in these shades:-




Sky (Airbrushed.)

Grass and Ground

Clothes and Shoes

Shoes Soles

White Socks

Cheek Blush

Because this card is for a boy, I went light on my sparkle. Smiles.. The leaf charm is from my stash, as is the twine.


The design paper is a textured paper, called Man Made. I absolutely love this. To touch it is awesome! I picked it up for £10 at The Range on Saturday. I am so glad that I did.


I matted everything with my yellow Core-Dinations card.


I really enjoyed doing this before and after comparison, and I think I will definitely be doing it again.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.
