Bright Birthday at La La Land Crafts

Happy Friday Everyone!

It's Inspiration Friday at La La Land Crafts.
This week's theme is Bright Birthday.

After month and a half guest designing at LLLC,
I finally got a hang of coloring Marci and am having fun doing it.
The images are larger than most stamp images, and have lots of details;
to me it's a great challenge to get the best coloring workout.

For my GDT card, I made a fan card using Kimono Marci with Fan
I have made a few fan cards last year, you can find my tutorial here.
It's not difficult to make, just requires some measurements.

I water colored the head and hand with Distress Ink pads.
I paper-pieced the kimono and fan with Origami paper from my stash.

I made a little pocket in the back of the card which holds a little tag.
I stamped a LOTV Happy Birthday sentiment on cardstock
and punch out with a Martha Stewart butterfly punch.

Here is the inside of the fan.

Designer paper: Bo Bunny and Basic Grey
Dies: Spellbinders, Memory Box, and Magnolia DooHickey

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you enjoy this visit.

Before you go, hop over to LLLC to see more fabulous DT creations.


I wish to enter this card in the following challenges:
