Aussie Birthday



Hey all! This month I'm guest designing for Angels Landing (Yay!) and here's my first card that I made using their digital images. The koala bear (and birds on the inside of the card) are from the super adorable Aussie Animals set.

I printed two koala images on PTI white CS and colored them with Copic markers, no heat setting or anything. The first one is on the white oval, the second one was cut out and popped up on foam tape. I did the same thing with the balloon he's holding, and the green scalloped oval is also up on foam tape. I traced over the balloon string with a black spica glitter pen. Here's a close-up:



The DP, Prism paper, ribbon, flowers, and candy dots are from my TE June Key Ingredients Subscription Kit. The bow was tied with my Bow Easy. Today's CAS Challenge on SCS is to make a card with a birthday theme...I just got lucky on that one and already had this card made {giggle}.

I printed, colored, and cut out two of the birds from the Aussie Animals set and added them to the inside of the card with a thin strip of the DP:

How sweet! Love your choice of images. Great coloring and dimension on your card!

Velta said...

How adorable!!! You certainly did this image justice when you designed around him...love the inside also !!

Whimsey said...

Oh I love these images; I'm not a digi chick, but you might change my mind!

PS - LOVED your comment on my blog; Baby Busch (a/k/a Kyle Busch) is the one driver we can't stand either. As soon as he moved up the track and Tony was already there I jumped up and started screaming. I was much too happy to see someone wreck. LOL

Tony's my favorite driver too; I was so happy to see him win...and he was even apologetic when they interviewed him. Nice of him, but when he sees the video, he'll know he didn't do anything wrong; they were both driving really hard!
