Alligator Birthday Card

Happy Friday Crafters,

Today I'm sharing with you a birthday card I made using the KaDoddle Bug Designs Surfing Alligator. 

I first started with making the sky using Time Holtz Distress Oxide ink - Broken China & Faded Jeans. 

I used various copic markers to shade the edges of the paper pieces.  
See below for the colors used.

Waves and sand were cut using Jaded Blossom Tropical Dies.  
I used Nuvo Crystal Drops to accent the waves and white Gelly Roll pen to accent the alligator, surf board, palm tree and coconuts and I used my brush with various brown copic markers to give it more texture.

Sentiments from Jaded Blossom Surfs Up stamp set. 

Here's a close up of that cool alligator.

 Here's the sentiment I used on the inside of the card. 

Card Recipe:

  • Sentiments from Jaded Blossom Surf's Up

  • Copic Markers:
    • YG17, YG25, YR04, Y15, G07, RV11, E15, E27
  • Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Broken China & Faded Jeans
  • Nuvo Crystal Drops - Gloss White
  • White Jelly Roll Pen.

Super excited to be a part of this weeks challenge for Die Cuttin' Divas which is the following sketch.

For my card I chose to do a print and cut die cut of the KaDoodle Bug Designs Charmkin Cuties - Lollipop Girl using my Silhoutte Cameo.   I also enlarged the lollipop for the circle portion of the sketch but I changed the colors.  
Added Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen to all items that look like lollipops.
