This first one is heat embossed with the Rose Gold EP, then watercolor with the Fresh Florals- Color Bursts, and Zig markers for extra details.
Once the panel was dry, I trimmed it with the largest Double Stitched Rectangle Die. I then stamped the Delicate Polka Dots Cling Background with Plum Wine couture color ink onto white card stock then cut the HAPPY from Bold General Greeting Word Plate Dies. To add a bit of sparkle, I heat embossed the lower half of the word with the same Rose Gold EPas the outline of the Peony Close Up stamp. The BIRTHDAY comes from the Peony Notes Bundle.
Going Blue on the next one :)
I tried my hand at coloring on Neenah Desert Storm Kraft paper with Premier Prismacolor Pencils. Did you know that the pencil color erases, almost incompletely, with a white eraser?..Not me, I learn something new every day :))
It was thrilling to see how easily the two colors mixed and blended together with the white pencil. The two colors I used were: PC208, PC1009, then blended with PC938..white.
LOVE this unique sentiment from the Wishful Wildflowers stamp set!
My husband had an extra night of volleyball, so I had time for a third card:)) And I just could not finish without coloring the Peony Close Up Yellow!
This time I stamped the Peony Close Up onto pattern paper and trimmed out a smaller bloom from the background stamp. I Adore how it turned out after adding more color with alcohol markers!Layered up more pattern papers and a pretty bit from the Pragmatic Wreaths stamp and die set.
The sentiment is from Thoughtful Poppies stamp set. with a kiss of Rose Champagne Sparkle Couture Mix for embellishment.
