Birthday Card for JAI94

It is my niece’s birthday this Friday and I needed to make a card quickly as I had to post it to Melbourne.  I used this weeks Just Add Ink #94 Sketch Challenge for my card.  I always love to look at Bronwyn Eastley’s easel cards so I was inspired to make one myself!  I used Chalk to colour in the Pony.

Now you may have noticed a little sneak peek at a new Stampin’ Up! product coming to Australia.  We are getting Glimmer Paper!!  It will come in two colours: Silver and Red and is available for purchase from 1 December.  A fantastic benefit of the silver glimmer paper is you can change the colour!!! This is how I got the flowers on my card to be Melon Mambo:

To change the colour you use your aqua painter with a few drops of re-inker and some water.  I followed the tutorial by Jill Olsen.  Click HERE to follow a link to her UTube video.

Cheers Deb
