When the Boys are Away...

This early evening I had the house to myself and rather doing laundry or the dishes, I made a card! And it's a girly card at to boot! Earlier this week Kim Hughes posted her fun and whimsical drawing of a clover rainbow on the PaperCrafts Blog and I grabbed it up and revised it a bit using clouds instead of the clovers. I knew right away that I wanted to do something ultra feminine, so I printed the image in gray, colored it in with pastel inks and a blender pen and for the very first time ever, added some Stickles. (What an interesting product to work with, it'll take me some getting used to, this whole glitter thing...) The sentiment is a clear sticker and I just outlined that and the card with a white gel pen to ground everything. The card size is 4.25x4.25 inches. I thought clean and simple was best to feature the image, and, I think it will be great to give for a girls birthday, or baptism or any other special event in her life. Lots of fun, this whole girly thing...

Supplies Used: Archers Kraft Paper, Georgia Pacific White Cardstock, SU Pretty in Pink, Apricot Appeal, Barely Banana, Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue Ink, Blender Pen, Ranger Stickles in Frosted Lace, Bo Bunny White Shabby Random Thoughts Stickers, Signo White Gel Pen, Fiskars Corner Round Punch
