Happy Birthday Jon!

Hello Ai fans!

This week the Art Impressions Design team is doing a product swap with Marvy!  We got the chance to try out several great products.  I'm showing you many of them today.  I'm sure you'll see a few other's on my blog here and there.  Like the Snow Writer. I didn't use it today, but I'll be using it for some future Christmas projects.  

Today's project is a birthday card for my brother Jon.  Every birthday he seems to end up wearing a crazy hat.  I used the Lifetime Set (SKU# 4728). I knew this was the perfect image for his card!


Over the years I have used many great Marvy products, so I was happy to be able to try out more Marvy products.  We received an assortment offlesh tone Le Plume Permanent Alcohol markers from Marvy.  I used OR820, Or821, OR823 and R813 on my old guys face, hands and legs. The rest of my image was colored with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.  I highlighted the balloon hat with the white Bistro Chalk Marker.  It has a nice Fine tip.  I also used it on the bow tie to go over some of the dots that had been colored over with red. Lastly I used the Deco Just Glitter Premium Markers for edging. I edged my card with the blue marker and the black layer with the purple marker. I was just careful to go slow while using the glitter markers for edging.  

Here is a closer view of my image.  I wish you could tell from this photo, but it's on a Mini Action Wobble spring. When you touch the image it springs to life.

As I mentioned above, the face is colored with the Marvy Le Plume Alcohol markers, I used the Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers for the rest of the image.

  1. I LOve the sentiment you used for your brother - and although your card is fabulous, colorful, well colored, and interesting... your brother is a scene stealer! I keep looking at him with the bucket on his head and laughing!
