Take a look:
I had some hard time deciding which stamp set to use first, but then I went with a big floral image from the Aloha set. I used watercolor paper, so I could color the image in using Zig watercolor markers. I tried to use tropical colors and that’s why I colored in the flowers in pink and yellow.
Once everything was colored I used coordinating die to die cut it out.
I wanted to have an interesing background so I used two colors of blue distress inks and ink blended them on the bottom left part of the paper. To add some more details I used the new Grid stencil and ink blended the same two colors over the top. This gives a nice touch to the background without making it too distracting.
In the end I felt like I added a bit too much of blue, so I sprinkled some white paint over it. This makes the white and blue more connected.
The last think I added to the card was the sentiment which reads ‘Happy birhtday’ from the Cactus hugs stamp set. I heat embossed it on black cardstock using white powder.
Then, I glued everything together using Studio Katia liquid glue and some foam squares.
Thank you so much for joining me!
