Josh's card

I went on a card making frenzy this week - 4 Mother's Day cards, two birthday cards and an anniversary card. Sadly I was in such a rush to mail the cards before they all needed to arrive, I forgot to photograph all but the one I finished last night - A card for Josh.

This was my first boy's card. As you can see, Josh is 37 this week, but he's still as big a kid as me, so the kiddy pic is appropriate. :)

I think that now my copic collection is growing, I should start recording which I use on each card.
The little lion was coloured with E35, E31, E25, box was coloured with B00 and B02, stars and ribbon in Y02. I learnt a trick last week that I used on the wedding dress on my previous card and the tissue paper on this one. Using the B00 I make an outline and then use the colourless blender over the blue to soften and blur. It makes the line so much softer and more subtle.

This little guy is entered into the following challenges this week:
My Partner in Crafting Crime - Incorporate numbers
Crafts and Me - Swirls
