Birthday Weekend Part Deux

Well last night’s dinner was fabulous.  It was nice to get together with the crew, since it’s been a while.  Today, we’re taking it a bit easy, I have a few things I need to do for school tomorrow, and a couple of birthday cards I’d like to get made.  In continuing with my weekend of birthday card posts, here is the card I made last weekend:

Happy Birthday Uncle Al 

I kept it pretty simple.  I stamped Joanie on the Neenah cardstock, then masked her and stamped the Jukebox.  I coloured it all with Copic Markers.  I used Elaine’s version of the jukebox as my inspiration for colouring this one.  The coloured cardstock is Stampin’ Up’s Cherry Cobbler and Bermuda Bay (which I know is retired).  I absolutely love my colouring job here.  I’m still trying to get the hang of colouring with Copics, and although I’ve improved a lot, I still have a long way to go.  I enjoy checking out blogs such as Elaine’s (she posts the colours she uses and has a couple tutorials), and Sherrie Siemens (who also posts colouring tutorials).  Seeing the colour combinations others use and the effects they achieve really help me figure out what colours to use together. 

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
