My friend Susanne, the talented author of the blog Keep in Touch is having a birthday on Monday. I can show you the card I made because the Cardologists had a party tonight complete with ice cream cake and presents for Susanne.
This is the Sweetbriar Rose from Stampin Up, that was one of two flower stamps sitting on my desk waiting for their first use, stamped on watercolor paper. The flower petals were painted with distress ink, the leaves with an Elmers watercolor brush. The leaves were a little dark so I took some of the color off with a waterbrush. I then had to fussy cut the flower because it needed to overlap the embossed strip, added the mulberry paper underneath, and touched it up with Wink of Stella and yellow pearls. Finally I decided to make the white card front into a layer and mounted it on a blush card.
I am going to link this to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge where it is "Anything Goes" this week.
Happy Birthday, Susanne!
