Today I have a birthday card to share. My dear friend (and soon to be sister-in-law) celebrated her birthday this week. I wanted to make something pretty and something to invoke her upcoming nuptials with my brother this summer.
I LOVE the stamp Reflection (40-218). It is so elegant and I wanted to color and cut. The image was stamped on Bristol paper and then watercolored with Inktense Watercolor Pencils. I fussy cut the image and trimmed it to size. The Deco Frame (51-125) die was cut from patterned paper. I die cut 2 more and adhered them behind the patterned paper cut to create thickness. The sentiment from Snippets (20-283) was stamped with Versamark ink on black cardstock and embossed with white EP. I set these pieces aside while I created the panel.
I wanted texture and decided to use Arcrylic paper as my panel. I lightly colored and blended Tattered Rose, Antique Linen, Pumice Stone and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I then splattered water on the panel and splattered silver color spray. Once dried, I adhered the frame, stamped image and sentiment. I then added the panel using foam tape to a card base.
I’ve added this to the SSS Work it Wednesday January 2016 challenge. The Deco Frame die has its debut on this card.
Until next time!
