#855 – STB: Sentiment as Focal Image

Hello and welcome to another edition of Seize the Birthday challenge! There is always the option of Anything Goes as long as your project is birthday themed, but there is also the choice of going with the topping; and the topping this time is ‘Sentiment as Focal Image’, chosen by our team mate Colleen!


I tried painting with my drawing inks after a long time! In fact, I used one of the same stamp as last time – Neat and Tangled So Good to See You.


I chose colors of blue and purple for the flowers, green and blue for the leaves, then added a few dots of brown, dotted the flower centers with yellow, finally added a few splatters of brown and finished the watercoloring.


I then die cut this piece using Winnie & Walter Essentials: Lana Cutaways. I stamped the sentiment – a mix of The Stamp Market Scripty Sentiments and MFT Anything but Basic Birthday Wishes in black ink and then heat embossed it with clear ep.

I hope you are inspired by my card! Check out the Seize the Birthday blog for more inspiration from out fabulous DT and also from our talented Surprise Party Guest, Joyce Mehrberg! And don’t forget to join the party! πŸ™‚

  1. I love how you grouped the flowers around the sentiment. Those dots really add to the detail. I am so afraid of adding the splashes as I have ruined so many cards that way. Yours look fantastic.

  2. I had to check out how the stamp set looks! You brought the florals to life! Beautiful coloring! I also love how you stamped the sentiment on top of the image!

  3. Ok I dont ink I ever heard about drawing inksπŸ™ˆ Are these like liquid watercolors ?
    You have painted Beautifully, love the card Ashwini.

    • Frankly, I don’t know what they are supposed to be either. I got them thinking I would use them like liquid watercolors, but they don’t really work the same. Just glad that I found a way to use them! 😁
