Birthday Flowers

Thursday, May 4, 2017


 While in the midst of cleaning up my craft room (some major Spring cleaning), I needed to take a break and create!!  I broke out this beautiful set from Concord & 9th:  Hello Lovely and sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Bigger Blooms stamp set.

 

First, I white embossed the image on watercolor cardstock and spritzed with water.  Then, using an aqua painter, filled in the embossed images and heat dried.  I spritzed some shimmer spray which softened the colors and added a few clear sequins.  

What a fun, relaxing break! 

 I'm excited to share my card in these challenges:
