Hello there. Once again I am privileged to be Guest Designer on the Seize the Birthday challenge again.
This time the theme is ‘Birthday and Spring Flowers’. Here is my card:
For these flowers I stamped and heat embossed with white, and water-coloured using my Zigs. I went for soft colours, one colour of each, and just a little blending with water. I am really quite pleased with how these turned out as I haven’t water-coloured like this for ages.
I then used the matching dies – something Clearly Besotted have stopped doing now, but I’m glad I had them for this set of stamps.
As these were soft flowers, I went for a dramatic background – a grey cardstock using a Crafters Companion wood grain embossing folder on Concord & 9th Mushroom card stock. . The sentiment is from Stampin Up – stamped in mushroom ink – again from Concord & 9th, then die cut with a stitched oval.
Some little clear drop thingies – no idea what they’re called – and the card is done.
I hope you can come and join us – It would be great to see your there with your birthday spring floral creations. xx
