I can't believe how long it's been since my last blog. I've been so busy! I've made lots of cards for lots of Birthday's, Anniversaries and Mother's day. My Daughter-in-Law Graduated from college and we went on vacation to visit my In-Laws they're 93 and 90 and have had a rough year but they came out on top and are in good health.
I'm itching to get back in the swing of things and I'm starting with this card I made for the Altenew May Inspiration Challenge.
I've been trying to work on and perfect my water coloring and shading so I've been practicing, a lot. I embossed my image first, for a little extra help keeping in the lines of the petal. For this card I used Remember This and Beautiful Day stamp sets and my Sentiment is from Floral Frame.
Using my MISTI, I stamped the flowers and leaves on Canson watercolor paper using VersaMark ink and embossed in Ranger Queen's Gold embossing powder. I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens to color the rose buds, leaves and small rose. For the larger flower I used Ranger distress inks to watercolor. Then I fussy cut all the pieces out.
I used 110lb Core'dinations white card stock for my A2 card and a strip of SU gold paper for the edge. After affixing the gold strip to the card I laid out all the leaves and the buds where I wanted them and adhered them to the front of the card, then I use dimensional tape to adhere the larger flowers. I stamped the birthday wishes with VersaMark and embossed it using Queen's Gold again.
Using my Clairty brushes and Tumbled Glass distress ink I shaded around the flowers. I added some blue Queen and Comp. pearls and was done.
I really enjoyed making this card, and I think I'm going to have a hard time giving it away, LOL.
I hope you like it as much as I do.
Well that's it for today have to go make dinner. Happy Crafting
I will be entering this card in these challenges:
