A little break from Christmas cards...
My friend asked me to make a birthday card for her 12 year old daughter. When I saw this card that Susan Itell had made, I thought...perfect! I changed it only slightly, as it really was just what I was looking for.
The image is from You're Sublime. I placed tape over the sentiment that is on the stamp and heat embossed the flower cart with black embossing powder onto water color paper. Then the fun part ~ I watercolored the cart and flowers with my Aqua Painter and several different colors of ink. I used the flower print in the English Garden DSP as a color reference and applied ink until I liked that way it looked.
The birthday wishes sentiment comes from Endless Birthday Wishes and I stamped it on with Basic Black Archival ink.
For added interest, I put a tiny silver brad through the center of the wheel, and a clear epoxy sticker over the heart in the cart.
I love the shine that sticker gives along with the embossed outline!
It is a 4 1/2" square card with Pool Party, Soft Suede, and So Saffron layers. I made my envelope with Pool Party paper and my Envelope Punch Board, then lined it with the English Garden DSP.
