thumbnail_C9 Birthday Bash RECTANGLE

Hello crafty friends!!  Happy birthday Concord & 9th!!!  I am the last person to help Concord & 9th celebrate their 1 year birthday! I cannot believe how fast time flies by and I don’t even realize it! Greg and Angie, thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to join in on your month-long birthday bash!

Today I am sharing with you a card using  BEAUTIFUL WORDS stamp set, and FLORAL & FLUTTER die. Here is the card that I made for Concord & 9th.

To start off, I took my watercolor paper and then I colored with pink and yellow watercolors for creating background. Once it was dry I die cut flowers using  Floral & Flutter die. And then I just removed the inner cuts from the flowers as you can see from the images below. Next I glued the panel to my white A2 cardbase.

After that I stamped the sentiment from Beautiful words stamp set with black ink. Next I stamped “beautiful” word with distress ink scattered Straw then I started to color the word using watercolor paint. Yes, I used no-line Coloring method which is one of my favorite techniques. Lastly, I added splatters around the sentiment.

Here is the fun part of this card!  I added vellum paper behind of the flowers. I hope you enjoyed my work today!
