Calli Bri HB card

I was given a challenge to create some cards using Lynn Slevinsky's style of decorative lettering. She has several books available for lettering and card making that are wonderful. Well worth purchasing and some are available through Quietfire Design called Marker Lettering HERE & HERE.

Now when you first look at this card, you might say to yourself, I can't do this - well think again. If you can color, you can do this.

My baby sister's birthday is coming up, so I thought what a good idea to make her card in this style.

I'm using Spellbinders dies, Tombow watercolor markers (my favorite watercoloring marker) and Sakura Stardust Gel pens (my favorite glittery gel pens). I'm also using the Happy Birthday stamp from Quietfire Design - love that stamp - so whimsical.

Click on card to see details, descriptions & closeups etc and to see what's hidden behind the lettering BIG GRIN.

And it fits for a few challenges:
