Have a Musically Wonderful Birthday Ann

We have a young woman in our church who is a very talented violinist.  She has competed in Europe, as well as Carnegie Hall.  When I saw this cute Girl with Violin from Polka Doodles I knew it would make the perfect card for Ann.

I printed the image on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with a laser printer.  This ensures that the lines will not bleed when coloring with Copic Markers.  Colors of markers used were: E11, E01, E000, R20; E49, E59, E37; E59, E35, E34, E33, E42; C0, C1; B000, B0000.  Once the coloring was complete a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle was used to die cut the image.

The sentiment from Penny Black’s Sprinkles & Smiles was stamped on the bottom of the focal image rectangle with Hero Hues India Ink Black.

A rectangle of blue cardstock was cut 1/8″ larger and adhered to the back of the focal image rectangle.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was cut the same size as the MFT rectangle and adhered to the back for added dimension.

A top folding A2 cardbase was made from 120# Gina K. Designs White Cardstock and the focal image panel was adhered with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.
