PE: Honorable Mention at Creativity Meets C9!! Its wonderful – the first time I joined the challenge too!! 🙂
Hello and welcome to a new challenge at Seize the Birthday. The topping this time is Anything Goes, so feel free to join us with any type of card, as long as it is birthday themed!
Here’s my inspiration for this time –
I made this card for a dear friend of mine, who celebrated her birthday just a few days ago.. so she already has this card with here. 🙂
I started with stamping the beautiful blossoms from Concord & 9th Hello Lovely stamp set using Antique Linen distress ink on Canson watercolor paper. I then colored them using Prisma color pencils, then watercolored them for a soft look. I then went back with my Unibal Signo black and gold gel pens to add the flower centers and a few dots here and there. The sentiment comes from Simon Says Stamp Big Birthday Wishes stamp set.
I then die cut the panel using Spellbinders A2 Curved Matting Basics, then mounted it on a pale yellow card base.
And here’s how the envelope came up. I stamped it with the same image, using Hero Arts Soft Granite, then only gave the flowers the least bit of coloring.
Submitting this card to the following challenges –
