So I finished the Birthday card I was making, and it is on its way to the intended recipient! But I did remember to take some pics first, before it made its way into the envelope and out to the post office 🙂
I used a piece of 140lb watercolor paper for the base, one side colored randomly from cleaning off my brayer while gelli printing. On the outside, I affixed a gelli print that I liked, added a birthday banner in a contrasting colored gelli print, and added some washi tapes. For the inside, I was going to use the orange I used for the banner, but didn’t like the way it looked with the mixed colors that were already there. So I picked another, more mellow gelli print and wrote out the birthday wishes with a Faber-Castell Pitt brush pen. I went back over it with a silver gell pen so it stood out more and was easier to read, then added some doodles down the sides with more Pitt pens.

While I was taking pictures of the card, I was messing with different white balance options on my camera to get good lighting in the images. Waffles came over to see what was going on and so I took a few pictures of her too. She was a bit freaked out at all the pictures, and you can see it in her face 😀 I love the last pic, just cracks me up!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
