Birthday card for Brother-in-law
A few of my friends got together and ordered a whole lot of Bellas and Fellas recently and they finally arrived, so I got to have a little play. I made this card for my Brother-in-laws birthday. Thought it quite appropriate as he loves to bbq. The colours are probably a bit dark as you lose the detail. Next time I will choose slightly lighter colours or try colouring using my watercolour crayons for as softer effect.
The image is Grillafella from the stamping bella range. I have wanted to get my hands on these stamps for a year now and finally have some. Very exciting. Let's be honest - any stamp set or anything to do with craft and stamping is awesome.
I used Stanpin Up© cardstock and markers in So Saffron, Bravo Burgundy, Night of Navy and Bordering Blue. The fella is stamped onto watercolour card with Stazon.
I stamped the sentiment onto twill tape with Bravo Burgundy ink.
