Very cute card.
Love this set. Great card and that foam looks super.
I'm sure your friend will love this, Katie! Great job with the foam.
I'm also sure your friend will love his card! Homemade is the best!
This is a great guy card! I'm sure he'll love it and wouldn't understand your statement about not having "true markers!" It's a big financial commitment to buy Copics, Spectrum Noir or even TH Distress markers, so you should play with the cheaper ones until you are sure it's something you want to invest in. American Crafts just came out with more reasonably priced alcohol markers. They look easier to use too-not near as many shades.
I keep going back and forth as to whether or not to invest in them. I really LOVE looking at other people's coloring, but I'm not sure I have the patience to do it with regularity. I almost bought a Copic yesterday JUST for this card, and I still may do that. I'm just not ready to dive into that money pit just yet. For now I'll use what I have (who would have thought I would ever say that!?!?!)...
I know what you are saying. It's a big expense even using a coupon at Hobby Lobby or Michaels. I have broken down and bought a couple of the 3 or 6 pack sets. My problem is I think my coloring should like these very talented ladies since I'm using a COPIC marker. It doesn't. (-: But I will continue to practice but not buy anymore. Think I do better with the colored or watercolor pencils. Have you tried those? Very cute lovely colored card.
This is so cool!LOVE that foam on the beer.
Coloring is pretty -perfect color for beer and foam is cute. Thanks for sharing. Know your friend will really appreciate it!
What a fantabulous card! I totally get your remark about the true markers. I finally bit the bullet a few months ago and purchased Spectrum Noir markers. I'm glad I did. (plus AC Moore is selling them 1/2 price for the original sets. Worked for me!) LOL! Not sure what markers you have, but the one you used for the beer is a perfect amber color! Your friend is gonna love your card!
I love the 3D effect of the bubblies!!!
Your card is great! I was like you and finally bought the Spectrum Noir marker sets a few months ago. Now IS a good time to get them, as they are phasing out the old design (marker model) and bringing in the new. Refills colors are the same for both. Can't beat $4.99 for 6 markers... they do the job for me! Hope your friend had a fabulous birthday, I'm sure they'll love the card!
What a fun card! I love how you created the foam!
Thanks for stopping by! I love reading all the feedback about my work!
