Tiddly Inks challenge 83- Birthday Bash!!

Image- Lilli Claire- Party Time from Tiddly Inks
Papers- Rainbow Polkadots from Funky Hand

Morning Peeps!!!
Its Tiddly Tuesday and its a kinda exciting one as we are getting ready for a bit of a celebration month for April...due to it being our gorgeously talented Boss Lady's birthday....very soon!!!!
So what do the Tiddly Inkers want to see from you over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog this challenge? we want you to.....

Create a BIRTHDAY card using any Tiddly Inks image!!

Simples!!! but totally and utterly fun! I love love loved this challenge! 
I was inspired by a few things for this one. The first thing was Christy's birthday, I went for her fav colours for this card which are red and black. The second thing I was inspired by was our very own crazy talented Jen's Sketch from a couple of weeks ago, I loved it so much ( thank you Jen...mwah xxxx ). Then there was of course the dots...ooooh I love dots so much!! so I of course had to head staright for my Rainbow Polkadots from Funky Hand, I love those too!!!! so I guess you could say this is a card full of love :)

I kept Lilli Claire quite mono using my promarkers, cool grey 1-5 and reds- lipstick, ruby and crimson. I really do like the effect of cool grey on skin, it looks yummy. The little dots on her skirt are red glitter pen, topped with a glaze pen so they 'pop' out! cute! she is also surrounded by starburst pen glittery dots but man they did not want to show up,grrr!!

Then I had some fun with my big shot making some yummy tim holtz tattered florals flowers, I added a teeny papermania punch to the middles too and a yummy swooshy thingy to sit behind them!!

The 'happy birthday' sentiment is from Funky Hands Now Thats Funky cd. It was one of my first funky hand buys and I still love it!!...see more love!! :)

OK so that's me for this morning, I have a tonne of stuff to do today before I take my mum to the hospital at lunch time. She is not doing so good with the pain from her spinal op, so its off for a good check over for her! hopefully they can sort her out a bit!

Please don't forget to pop on over to the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog and see what my gorgeous teamies have got to show you all too!

Huge hugs Lou xxx

  20. Oh my gosh!!! Lou this is SOOO very adorable! I love your soft coloring on this image with all that gorgeous red!!! The shoes are so cute! I love the polka-a-dot paper too!

  21. Lou this is fabulous. The way you've colored her gives it a hand colored over blach and white sepia effect(if that makes any sense). At any rate, it's a hard effect to get to me, but you've mastered it.
