Hello!! Welcome to my first post as a DT member of Seize the Birthday!!! There, its finally out – oh, I had such trouble keeping it in for so many days!! I am super happy to be a part of this amazing team, where I am debuting as a DT!!
Our Surprise Party Guest is Sherrie Koning, amazing crafter – you should go and check her out!! And here’s the theme for the latest Seize the Birthday Challenge – Lots of Leaves.
I was really inspired by this card by Keeway (Kiwi Concepts) – love the way she has created this dreamy card, and the colors just wow me!! And here’s what I made –
I started by blending in a green ombre using distress ink on a watercard panel. I then stamped the ferns from Lesia Zgharda Ferns stamp set and heat embossed them clear. I then added water on the entire panel using a flat paint brush, and picked off the color. This made the embossed areas slightly darker, and gave a beautiful effect.
I then trimmed this panel and foam mounted it on the card base. For the sentiment, I cut Paper Smooches Happy Birthday die to cut a piece from card stock and foam, adhered them to each other and then on the card. Finally I embellished them using clear rhinestones.
Hope you are inspired by my creation! You can get even more amazing inspiration from the rest of the Design Team! Remember, you can choose either to go with the theme, or with any creation, which has a birthday theme. Just have fun and play along!!
I am also submitting this card to the following challenges –
Happy Little Stampers: October Mixed Media Challenge: Nature (I’ve used embossing, distress inks, watercoloring over distress inks, die cuts, rhinestones for embellishment)
And thanks for stopping by! 🙂
