Hello and welcome to yet another challenge at Seize the Birthday! The optional topping this time is “Spring”. Just the perfect theme for the weather we are having right now! 🙂
The card I made also goes to a very dear friend, and I really hope she likes it! Here it is –
I started with a bright white paper, Fabriano Elle Erre Bianco. I had initially thought of using watercolor paper, but since it was a little off-white, I changed it. And since this wasn’t watercolor paper, I used Zig Brush pens for coloring, and then a little bit of distress ink for watercoloring the greens later. Just kept the water minimal, so that the paper wouldn’t warp.
To start with, I stamped all the images, from Altenew Peony Scrolls, Altenew Golden Garden and Winnie & Walter In Bloom: Addies Garden using Versafine Onyx ink. Once this was completely dry, I started coloring them. I also stamped the flowers separately, colored and fussy cut them, to adhere them on top of the piece.
The sentiment comes from Reverse Confetti Banner In Bloom. The design on the base cardstock comes from Ranger/Tim Holtz Boundless Flight stamp set – something I have in my stack since God knows when! I am glad to have used this beautiful stamp here to add a bit to the otherwise plain background.
I am also joining the following challenges –
