The final birthday of this week, for Ashley my husbands nephew, who turned 13!
Wow how the time passes, I remember visiting him in hospital the day after he was born, just days after finding out, I myself, was pregnant with Harry!
So what better to do for a new teen, than to depict their favourite pass time...X-BOX!!
I punted around my favourite digi sites and found this one, its by Maurie J. Manning from
I just love all of her illustrations, and there is a good range of images, but it it does make it hard to choose, I could easily spend an absolute fortune! but there is something there for everyone and every occasion.
I have been trying to limit the amount of colour groups I am using, as I think it makes the finished product less complicated.
The other thing I'm doing is to keep my cards more simple than I have done in the past, I put a lot of time and effort into my colouring and that's what I want the main focus to be.
I am not knocking any of the beautiful artwork that I see looking around my favourite blogs, I just want to keep it simple, that's my style .
So Here is the finished card, I haven't used any backing papers, just clear embossed a few stars, Hope you like it!
Happy colouring you lot
