Oh, Happy Day

Morning friends. Happy day today, it's a FREE WEEK for us girlies over at My Mum's Craft Shop! We get to create something just because we want to with no set theme.

This week I thought I'd share Mother Goose's birthday card with you all!! It was her birthday earlier in the month. I was so tempted to include her age on this card, just to serve as a little reminder, but I knew I'd be posting it here at some point, so I wanted to save her a little embarrassment. Bless her.

So for this card I used:
and some delicious Echo Park papers

I coloured the adorable Elsie up using my ProMarkers and added a little cloudy sky in behind her. I was really pleased with how those clouds turned out - see, practice does pay off.

To create my clouds I simply sketch in a faint cloud outline then fill in my blue sky around it. I then go in with BG1, BG2 and BG3 to create some depth to the outlines of the clouds. 

The next step in my learning curve is to create clouds with poofy bits inside them, so I have shading in there too, instead of just around the outside. Watch this space! LOL!!

Thank you for stopping by today! Happy Monday. xo
