Happy Birthday For Him

Hi all how are you all this fine winters eve,
I am ok apart from freezing half to death lol I just hope we don't get snow anytime soon.Tonight I have this little Happy Birthday card to share which I made this afternoon.
I have used one of Kenny K's digital images and coloured him with promarkers,this is the first time I have coloured an image mixing two different colours together I did this with orange and yellow on the fish so I hope it blended ok any tips will be greatly appriciated.I have also used oval and scallop oval nesties,bakers twine,buttons and a greeting also I have used a cuttlebug star embossing folder.For added detail I have added some faux stitching to the topper and greeting.

I don't know much about blending colours like that but it looks like you achieved a very good effect on the fish the way you did it. I know that tip to tip blending can be done but haven't really tried it for myself so cannot speak from experience. I like the way your twine picks up the red & white theme.
