If I were to pick, the only thing I'm not 100% happy with on the card is my writing and the 'colouring'. I used watercolour pencils, but I have decided after some practicing and doing 10 of these cards, that I'm really not a fan of water colour pencils.
Paper: Brazill Basics Lemonade (yellow), green, white
Stamps: Hero Arts - I think it's called Playful Animals?
Started: back in January. They've been completed all but the "Happy Birthday" for weeks now, I just got around to that part this morning.
Comments: Not that I need another tool, but I'm considering getting a thing-a-ma-jig from SU to help me line up my stamps better if I continue to make a lot of cards. I really suck at lining stuff up.
I've asked a couple of people what their favourite colouring 'device' is and was given a few other options to try out;
- Stampin' up (or any really) markers, aqua pen and watercolour paper.
- Stampin' up inks and a blender pen. You squeeze the ink so that you have some on the cover, then use the blender pen to colour your stamped image.
- SU crayons or their watercolour pencils.
M is going to be bringing her markers, aqua pens and blender pens to the next crafty night on the 11th and show her techniques, so I'll get a better idea then if I want to go the marker/ink route for colouring.
Surprisingly, I do not have many projects on the go right now. I'm working on Tash's Birthday page for her scrapbook (I found some perfect Heidi Grace paper that matches her cake to a T!) and cross stitching the EMS Butterfly Baby.
We had friends over last night and I was happy to hear she is having her shower after the baby is born, so I'm going to hold off on deciding the colours for the crocheted baby blanket I was going to do for her so I can make it more gender specific instead of gender neutral.
