Birthday for a friend...

Yes, still on birthdays... This one I LOVED coloring!!  It is a freebie image from Saturated Canary, THANK YOU, and I found it fun, fun!!  It was a bit hard to color on some areas, but I managed.  





I used different techniques on this card.  I love the concept of the crooked rectangles.  I think it gives it a very nice and modern dimension.  I don't know if you can see it well, but the edges and corners of the cards were sponged with chalk ink from ColorBox.  The color is Citrine which is like a flourescent green.  Very pretty.  I love the tecnique.  Adds so much to the card.  If you click on the image, you can see a larger version.

On the hair coloring:

I was experimenting with some color suggestions I saw online and came up with this pretty honey colored hair!  I think its really cute!  The Yellows seem to blend very well with the Earth colors.

I mainly buy all my cardstock and embellishments from Michael's, JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby. 




Birthdays... and more birthdays...

Dr. Who!!  Many of us know of the very old British TV show where an alien travels in a phone booth through the universe and through time (time travel).  I've become a fan and my husband is die hard fan! He is the one that got me into it.  So, I made a cake with Dr. Who's theme and of course, his birthday card. 

This is a coloring image I obtained online from http://chitanzer.deviantart.com.  Thank you for sharing the image!!  I had coloring it!!  And of course, giving credit to BBC for their awesome DR. Who TV show! Its an image of Dr. Who (younger) leaning on one of his enemies: The Daleks.
