I wanted to create a scene with Copic markers but nothing was inspiring me.
Then, I thought of the many cute Conie Fong digital images of boys and thought I could combine one or two together to make a scene.
Once I decided on 'Basketball Benny' and 'Skateboarding Benny', I looked through my own saved image backgrounds and found one with this city park. I faded the lines on the image and layered the boys on top. I used Microsoft Word to add a Happy Birthday text box and the age six clip art.
Then the colouring began! By the end, I thought this looked a bit like Central Park in the US or somewhere similar.
Once the colouring was done, I added a frame and let the scene create the card design.
This card is obviously for a child who's turning six. However, it can be stretched to be used for twins.
As always, my cards are only $5 each and are available in my shop.
