#487 – A Few Cards Over the Weekend (3)

PE: Winner at Addicted to Stamps!!

Addicted to Stamps - Winner

And here’s the last card I made last weekend –

Happy Birthday

One of the cards where my plans and ideas went a complete 180! I actually wanted to make this a one-layered card, and the idea was to stack the flowers, to use masking, and getting some coloring practice. Since I couldn’t get a great coloring practice either, it’s a 50-50, I guess! 😉

So, I used Altenew Lacy Scrolls and MFY hybrid black ink for stamping and Derwent Inktense pencils for watercoloring. Once done, I added a bit of stencilling using Basically Essential Remember & Thanks stencil and Black Soot distress in. The sentiment is from Paper Trey Ink Wet Paint stamp and die. And a bit of embellishment around the sentiment using some black rhinestones.

Happy Birthday

Submitting this to Altenew June Inspiration Challenge, SSS Wednesday Challenge: Mask It, Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #11 (I used yellow, mixed alpha and garden) and Addicted to Stamps #197: Make Your Mark
