Hello everyone! Hope your week is going well. I'm back today to share a birthday card I made for a long distance friend - Carla (AKA cardsbycarla on SCS).
I didn't want to post this until I knew she had received it and she has. The image I'm using is from WPlus9 called Beautiful Bouquets - Dahlias.
I started by embossing the flowers onto some prima watercolour paper using white embossing powder. I then coloured the images with Prima Watercolour Confections. I used colours from both of these sets: Tropicals & Decadent Pies. This is the first time using these paints and I love them.
Once the paint was dry ( let it sit overnight) I splattered some blue paint onto it. I then cut out the image using the outside die from a set by Creative Expressions - Frames & Tags - Isobel.
I was undecided as to what colour do layer my image onto, so after several attempts of blues, yellows or greens, I decided on a medium gray. I embossed the gray using a SU embossing folder by Sizzix called Modern Mosaics. Some fun foam was added to the back of the floral piece before adhering to the gray c/s. I then embossed in white the birthday sentiment onto a piece of black c/s and popped it up for some added dimension. Added sequins and a silk bow to finish this off.
Have a wonderful weekend!
