Crafting For All Seasons Challenge #9 - Birthday

Hello and welcome :)

This week over at Crafting For All Season's the challenge is Birthday and is being sponsored by Meljen's!  You could win yourself some gorgeous Meljen's stamps so head on over and get your entry in.

I have used the gorgeous new Cubbin Around image from Meljen's.  I was a bit scared at first as I didn't really know how to colour it and I had no idea about which colours to use.  So in my usual way I just guessed and this is what I came up with.  I'm pretty happy as it was my first attempt and I think they look adorable.

I didn't have any background paper that I liked so I made my own.  On some green scrapbook paper I stamped  Lucy's Stamp 1872LF Chalk Leaves Small in Colour Box Fluid Chalk Warm Green.  Totally happy with the result ... here is a picture.
I then matted the image on some brownish coloured card and then the same orange/brown as the base card.  The words Birthday Wishes are actually some Rub Ons from Wendy Irving.  I really like these as they are so easy to use .. will have to try and find myself some more.  I got these ones free with a card making subscription years ago.

Here is a list of the Copics I used:-
Tiger Cubs -E50, 51, 53, 31, 33  Y21, YR16  I just kept blending and adding until I was happy
Grass - YG00, 03

Enjoy your colouring, creating and crafting xoxoxox
