I coloured her in using Spectrum Noirs and chose to colour her hair purple (using PL1, 2, 3 and 4). I wanted to try a new technique for me and went for the shiney hair look.
When it came to putting the card together I didn't want to add too many layers (making the card heavy in weight) so I ran the chisel tip of a Spectrum Noir Pen (PL1) around the edge to give a faux matting look. I then layered some pattern card onto purple co-ordinations card stock and then layered it all up in a jaunty angle on the card.
I added some paper roses to my card. These were left over from a felt gingerbread couple I made for a friend and had wire attached but I snipped it off with scissors to make the backs flat.
I finished off matting and layering a 'Happy Birthday' sentiment onto the card.
I loved making this card and it was so fun to colour hair in a bright 'unnatural' colour.
