Hap-Pea Birthday! 9

Hi there! I’m with you today, showcasing one of the little clip arts from the most current monthly colouring pack over at Karleigh Sue. I thought it would be fun to make some of the clip arts the main feature on some cards, and was immediately drawn to this cute pea pod!

I decided to make this a more masculine themed card, so I used some greens, blues and mustards in my colour palette.


I lightened the lines of the image, then coloured with my copics, for a ‘no lines’ effect, and added in a cast shadow underneath, so the pea pod didn’t look like it was floating!

as a finishing touch, I added some triple thick to the peas in the pod, to make them really POP from the pod!

don’t forget too, if you do get the colouring pack, you can enter your colouring or cards over in the official karleigh sue fan group on facebook, to be in with  chance of winning next months colouring pack absolutely FREE!
