Do you know what is the problem with having a lot of supplies? Making a choice! I must have changed my mind a half dozen times before finally deciding to make a humorous masculine card using one of Bonnie Krebs' delightful Sloth images. Who doesn't love sloths?
I chose to make the card in a slimline format since I wanted lots of room under the sloth which was hanging from a branch as they customarily do. The base is heavy Whisper White and then I've added a layer of Old Olive to bring out the colours of those little leaves. I used my Derwent watercolour pencils and an Aqua Painter to colour the image and love the results. To add some festive sparkle, I heat embossed a series of gold sparkles around the image. It's a birthday card, after all.
I simply love the sweet expression on the sloth's face. Don't ask how that party hat is managing to stay on his head. That was Bonnie Krebs' idea. I think the card would work beautifully for a guy of any age, don't you?
Have fun checking out our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and I hope you'll link your creation before the deadline on Monday, November 29th, 2021.
I've also entered my card at the following challenges:
