here. I loved playing with this technique and adored how it came out.
I started out with a piece of 4" by 4" piece of Strathmore watercolor paper. I used the flower from Penny Black Blooming garden for this piece, and stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I smudged out the outlines of the image using just water and used the leftover on my brush to draw the circle where my sentiment will be. After the image dried, I blended in some distress ink in Dusty Concord to add a bit of color to my flowers. I also used the remaining color on the brush to add some splatter.
Next, I used my Martha Stewart mini scoring board to score a couple lines near the bottom of the flowers. The birthday sentiment was stamped with Avery Elle Sending Love set. Isn't the font so lovely?
I finished up this card by adding a few sparkly sequins (it IS sparkling Saturday after all!) and framed this on a 4.5" by 4.5" purple cardstock. I mounted this onto a fuchsia card base measuring 5.25" by 5.25" and voilà. Done.
I am entering this card to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Anything Goes! challenge and also the Color Throwdown #351 challenge.
Hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by. Happy Crafting!
I am a girl who loves crafting and coloring images as my favorite form of therapy. I believe that as long as you create anything from the heart, it will be greatly appreciated and will bring a smile to the recipient's face.
