CAS Birthday Card

If anyone would like to follow my blog you can either click on the 2 red squares next to the 'join' button and then click follow or, copy the link and paste it into your reading list.  For some reason my button has never worked :(

Family birthday card from me today.  I have several female birthdays (Aunts and Cousins) this month and haven't quite decided who it's for yet.......I have a very large family so there's never a shortage of birthdays :)

I've used Lola Cabaret from Artbymiran for this card.  Find her here

I've used greyscale spectrum noir markers in the IG group to colour the image and then used a mix of DR and CR for the boa.  I wanted to give it texture so I played around a little with my technique and am happy with the results

Although it's CAS I still like to play around with my card shapes......

A close up of Lola Cabaret,  Hopefully you can see the technique used to create the texture on the boa.  I've used tiny black and red gems for the fascinator in her hair and larger gems around the rest of the card

I hope you like it, thanks for looking xx
