Happy Birthday, my friend!
This is a card that I did for a very dear friend who just turned 30. It was a lot of fun to do and uses the emboss resist technique. I colored the image with prismacolor pencils layering the colors to get some depth and softness to the image. Then I used a versamark marker and colored over everything I wanted to remain in the colors I used. After that I embossed with clear embossing powder, and brayered on the background. To give the blue more depth, I used prismacolor pencils again and added some layers and texture to it. The hardware is Stampin' Up!'s vanilla hodgepodge hardware.
