Happy Birthday to You ...

Good morning! I'm hosting the Art by Miran Blog today. Our "Theme" for the month of June is to create "Anything but a Square Card". Since I don't make many square cards, this one is easy for me.

One of my nieces will be tuning 18 next month so I printed up the lovely Flutterby. I colored her while on vacation last week while my daughter napped. I only took Copic Markers for the skin, and then colored the rest of her with my Faber-Castell Polychrome Pencils. It's the first time I've combined mediums for coloring. It was a challenge but I love how she turned out.

I fussy cut  Flutterby after I got home. My design was inspired by the Sweet Sunday Sketch #273. The top and bottom border, along with the birthday sentiment are SRM Stickers.

I changed up the sketch a bit by adding the sentiment across the front on Grafix Clear Craft Plastic, and then left off the circle. I used my Copic Air Brush to color the doily using Copic YR02 & YR04, and then applied the same colors to the background behind Flutterby.

I appreciate you stopping by today.
Until next time ... Enjoy!
