It's Your Birthday

Thursday, March 24, 2011


This was actually the first card I made for the CR84FN Color Challenge.  I'm not in love with the coloring.  From a distance it looks OK, but close up it looks a little over worked.  Sometimes the more you try to blend it seems like color is removed by the lightest color.  Know what I mean? 

Have a great day!


Cardstock: PTI White, Royal Velvet
Stamps: PTI Hello Friend, In Bloom
Ink: Memento Black
Other: Copics, CB Embossing Folder, Corner Rounder Punch

  1. I think both the coloring and embossing on it are perfect Kara. Wish I could have my best copic coloring look like your "not so favorite" ones. Love that Royal Velvet cardstock too, probably one of my favorite colors.

  2. Love this Kara! I think the flowers look wonderful, and the sentiment is so pretty! I wish PTI would make more sentiments with that open font.

  4. I know what you mean - my purple copics are too far apart in shade, and the darkest gets all 'motheaten'. That being said, this is a beautiful card and it's better colouring than I can do!!
