Hi there. I'm so glad you stopped by!
I'm back again at Seize the Birthday as their Surprise Party Guest.
Who doesn't love a birthday party!
I have used this wonderful 3D Embossing Folder with Die from Simon Says.
I embossed on Neenah Solar White and cut the flower from Fabriano Watercolor paper.
To color, I used Distress Oxide inks and a sponge dauber, then went over the coloring
with a damp waterbrush. It's such an easy way to get that watercolor look!
I had to hunt, but I found a banner die in my stash. After cutting it, I added a gold
As usual, I overdid it with splatters. It was an easy fix with the waterbrush and
a little blending over the flower. I used a gold gel pen to add some gold highlights
to tie in with the banner.
Remember you don't have to use the topping on your birthday card to join the party.
Just be sure that it's a birthday card. And if you're a topping kind of person, you can add
a birthday banner. Hope to see you over at Seize the Birthday.
