Floral Birthday Wishes


CASEing the designer is something I like to do and I really like the colours used in the inspiration photo so went with my version of those. I used a GKD stamp set called Birds and Blossoms 2 and chose the largest flower along with a smaller one and the leaves. The sentiment is from Joy Clair. I stamped the images using a Hero Arts black that doesn’t smudge if wet and then used some shimmery watercolour paints to colour them. Before that I masked off the large flower, added 2 smaller ones and the leaf sprig in 2 places. The leaf sprig was stamped in Bundled Sage Distress ink. When it was all dry I tapped some paint spatter over it. I added a few gems and then glued it to the angled background papers that I had already put on the card front. Papers from my stash, one is by StampinUp and the other from a 6×6 paper pad. The shimmer is very evident in R.L. but not on the photo unfortunately.
