Birthday Cards for My Babies!

I wanted to share the Birthday Cards that I made for my kids last week. I think they came out adorable! And I know that Phoenix and Rhiannon  love them. Here’s Rhiannon’s.

Rhi's-Card-1

Back in October, I had one a digi challenge over at Haunted Design House, and I won digis of my choice from Delicious Doodles. Boy, what awesome images they have!!! It was tough to choose, but this one was a no brainer. I LOVE dragons, and I thought that this Momma and Baby (or Daddy and baby) was perfect! I knew I was going to use it for Rhiannon.

I colored the image in with my watercolor markers and a hint of colored pencils. I wanted the skin to have texture, so I colored it over and over in long lines. I think it looks cool! And she really liked the baby in the egg. She thought it was funny!

Nix's-Card-1

I had gotten this stamp a while ago in a swap box with the S&S girls, and as soon as I saw it, I knew Phoenix would love it! How sweet is this robot? He’s colored with my watercolor markers as well. I wrote “Nix” on the robot’s chest. Know what Phoenix’s favorite part about this card is? The rhinestones!

Nix's-Card-2

I kept both cards pretty simple, which I think is best for kids. They really love them, so that makes me happy. Have an inspiring day!!!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
