This is the card I am entering in this months Scrapbook Boutique blog challenge. Each month we are given a mood board for inspiration. With spring just around the corner I decided to use the bird as my inspiration.
The background "leafy" panel was cut on the Silhouette Cameo. I stamped the bird with distress ink and did very little colouring as I wasn't sure how the Copic marker would react with the ink but as you can see it worked well.
It was a milestone birthday for a male family member this past week. I am usually at a loss when it comes to male cards but when I saw the mood board for the June Challenge on Scrapbook Boutique, where the theme this month is "Gold is the New Black", it gave me some much needed inspiration.
I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils, cut out and popped up on dimensionals. The background dp was a free download from "Free Pretty Things for You". The "Happy" cutout was designed by me and cut using the Silhouette Cameo.
I love the soft pastel colours on this months mood board over on the Scrapbook Boutique Challenge Blog so I used that as inspiration for this card. The flowers were embossed on vellum with white embossing powder and then coloured from the back with distress inks.
