Happy Birthday Mum
I made this card for my mum's birthday using a digi stamp from the fab sketching stamper.
I just fell in love with these bluebells when I saw them and they were a dream to colour as the shading is sketched on so it takes all the guess work out of colouring up the image.
I had just purchased these beautiful papers from pink petticoat and, I thought, they just worked perfectly with the image.
The image is coloured with watercolour pencils and I cropped the image then chalked the background.
I didn't do much else just layered up some papers and added some pearls and pearl sprays (which I love by the way).
I hope you like it - I did so enjoy making it - by the time I gave it to my mum it had little lots of little boy finger prints and some juice spots on it too!
