Time to Celebrate! Cards with Robin

"Happy Birthday"

Hello everyone!  I am here today with a fun card trio share with you.  
This month I am celebrating the fun events in life.  
 My first card shows just how effortlessly the clean
 finishes on the chipboard blends with the intricate design of the
 fussy cut papers and 3-D flowers.

I added a playful piece of circle chipboard to serve as a hoop for my little clown. 
 I used a circle from the "6" Circle Revolution" pieces which I covered with gesso
 and white paint.  I left the circle clean and white which goes well with
 the busy design elements which dance around the piece.

I used "Birthday Sentiments" to create my card title.  The title is a faint green
 color which was achieved by adding white paint to green paint.

I will be attending quite a few weddings this year and what better gift to give
 than a handmade card.
  This particular bride is very sentimental, traditional and loves images from the past. 
 I thought I would create a card with her in mind. 
 I thought it would be beautiful for the  lady to sit on top of the chipboard while 
her skirt cascades over the pieces.  I added just a few flowers as I wanted
 my chipboard combination to take center stage.

First, I primed each piece of chipboard using white Gesso. Once dry, I painted the chipboard ivory then applied glossy accents to give the chipboard pieces a shiny, 
smooth appearance.

 I added liquid pearls and fussy cut flowers to finish my design.

"Let's Party!"

My final card is definitely a favorite.  I love using I used "Chicken Barbed Wire -Small" 
 chipboad as my part of my card base. 

I primed the chicken wire using white gesso. Once dry, I applied a green shimmer spray.

I painted my leaf using two shades of green to create a shading effect.
  I intertwined the paper leaves with the chipboard for added texture. 
 To finish my design added a butterfly from  "Sharon's Butterflies" which 
was painted white then lightly inked.
