I really need to work on updating this more often. The sad thing is that I totally have cards all made up and ready to go. I just need to snap a picture of them. We don’t get a lot of sun at my house since its mostly in the woods and the lighting inside isn’t the best. Anywho…my sweet nephew turned six in May. I can’t believe he is six years old and just about finished with Kindergarten. Time really does go by so fast. It’s pretty insane.
I was on the hunt for a digi image for another card (I did make that one too! Just need to snap a pic) and I happened to stumble on this cute Robot from Tiddly Inks. I LOVE the images she has there! So much so, that I may have gotten a little out of hand buying some! I don’t have a whole lot of images for little boy cards and this robot seemed to fit the bill. He even has some super cute birthday balloons. Perfect!
I didn’t shrink it down enough though so the image was slightly bigger than I had planned. Of course I didn’t realize that until after I had it all colored. I was still able to fit him in the nestie, but I had to use the largest one and wasn’t able to mat it as originally planned. The card base is basic gray from SU! and all the patterned paper is from SU! as well. This particular pack was retired but I’m pretty sure it was a circus pattern. I can’t remember the name off hand. I liked the colors in it though and figured it worked well with the image.
I colored him up with my copics and added some crystal effects to the balloons so they were more balloon-like. I also popped the image up on pop dots. I really like the way it came out and will definitely use this image again. It was a super simple, fast card to put together and I didn’t really do too much to it since it was going to a six year old who probably doesn’t care about the card so much 🙂
