Kelly’s Stamping Friends – Birthday Blog Hop 2018
You’ve Got This Birthday Card
Since we’re celebrating Kelly’s birthday, I used You’ve Got This to create
a birthday card.
For my base and focal layer, I used Thick Whisper Whitie.
Then, I masked and stamped the lovely flower from You’ve Got This
and heat embossed in gold.
To watercolor the flowers, I used my Aqua Painter and ink
from my Berry Burst ink pad.
My “technique” is to paint the darker ink and as the color lightens
to move to other petals.
Doing it this way, I get lots of tonal variation.
Then, I load the brush and start again.
For the background, I swished in Old Olive and then added some
Mossy Meadow to create some depth.
Using a piece of Vellum, I embossed the sentiment from Lovely Inside and Out.
So that the adhesive wouldn’t show, I wrapped the Vellum strip
to the back of the focal layer.
To cut the Gold Foil, I used the Happy Birthday Thinlits.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my You’ve Got This birthday card!
