Birthday Wishes- Watercolor Flower Shop :-)

Hi Stampers! 

I hope all of you are having a great week so far!   While I had all of the new 2013-2015 In Colors out to create a card for the Fab Friday FabFri20 Challenge, I decided to create one more card for the challenge with bits of pieces that had been created during the initial card design process – again, if you have a chance, stop by the Fab Friday site  for fabulous inspiration!

Originally this card started out as a watercolor background but I was not happy with the results so I modified it to create the finished card…

To create this card:

Using Baked Brown Sugar, stamp the floral images onto Whisper White cardstock.  Use the AquaPainter™ and pick up ink from Crisp Cantaloupe and Strawberry Slush Classic Ink Pads to fill in the blossoms of the flowers.  Use the Stampin’ Write Early Espresso marker to darken and add a bit of texture to the middle of the flowers.  

FYI- Originally I had masked the flowers and stamped off for the lighter colors and had a watercolor background of Cool Cabana behind the flowers- I was not pleased with the result so I decided to fussy-cut the flowers out and adhere to the card.   This is another example of how a mistake can be used later in another way :-) 

Use the Big Shot™ with the Framed Tulips Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Basic Black cardstock.  Adhere to a piece of Strawberry Slush cardstock and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

Add the embossed Whisper White panel (using the Large Scallop Framelit and Delicate Designs "Lace"Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder) and the embossed Pistachio Pudding panel. 

Stamp the script image from Notable Notions using Cool Cabana Classic Ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Create the leaves from Pistachio Pudding cardstock with the Bird Builder Punch and add along with the watercolored flowers to the focal panel.

Stamp the sentiment from Wetlands using Cool Cabana Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the Large Oval Punch.  Layer Strawberry Slush cardstock behind the sentiment and add to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Flower Shop, Notable Notions, Wetlands

Ink: Baked Brown Sugar, Cool Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush, Stampin’ Write Early Espresso marker

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Strawberry Slush, Pistachio Pudding

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Framed Tulips, Fancy Fan and Delicate Designs (Lace) Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders, Large Oval Punch  

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope all of you have a wonderful day!
