Birthday Goat

Hello there, today I have the birthday card that I made for my dad, to share with you. I don't know about you but I do struggle with coming up with new ideas for male cards. I remembered I had the great Birthday Farm Animals from Simon Says Stamp and thought the goat would be great to use.

I first stamped the goat and then masked off portions of the pig holding the balloon, so that I could just stamp the balloon part. I drew in the string with a Copic Multi-liner. I then stamped the sentiment to the side. He was coloured in with Copic Markers, I hadn't initially planned on colouring it as a whole piece with a whole background and I am not entirely happy with it but it turned out ok.
The panel, which had been cut with the ME Femme Frames die, was adhered to a white A2 card base with fun/funky foam. I then added Glossy Accents to the balloon and the goats nose.
Here are the links to what I have used on the card. Please click the picture to be taken to where I purchased it.

COPIC MARKERS - Goat: W6, W5, W4, W3, W2, W1, W0, E84, E81, R02, R01, R00, B000. Cupcake: E53, E51, E50, E29, E27, E25, E23. Balloon: B14, B12. Ground: E71, E70, E37, E35, E34, E33, E31. Sky: B91, B000, B0000.

  2. I think he's really cute- is the background all coloured with Copics? It looks quite subtle, maybe it's the photo making it look lighter? Have a nice day, Rebecca x x
