Happy Birthday Wishes

Hey stampers, Anni here!
Hope you all have a fun and relaxing weekend with a lot of time for crafting.
I can't seem to stay away from my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush pens lately. So I made another card using them and a set with lovely flower stamps from Altenew called Best Mom.

I started by stamping the flowers with an embossing ink and embossed it with white embossing powder on watercolor paper. Then I colored the image with my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush pens. These pens are really easy to use but of course you could color with whatever watercolor medium you have on hand. I used two or three different shades of pinks and reds for the flowers and kep the leaves simple and subtle. I fussy cut the image by hand.

For the sentiment I needed something not too eyecatching but something to add a little bit of intrest. I went with this beautiful word die by W Plus 9 called Happy Wishes Word Die. To match the flowers I added a little bit of the same color but with much more water to keep it light. For a little bit of contrast I embossed a small Birthday on dark grey cardstock.

To finish the card I added some sequins and tiny pearls.

Thanks for stopping by!

  4. So eine wunderschöne Karte! Die Farbkombination ist super gewählt, das inspiriert mich für eine Karte mit meiner "geliebten" Amaryllis! Ich bin froh hier mal auch auf Deutsch schreiben zu können. Ich würde ja gerne oft etwas zu euren schönen Karten sagen, aber in Englisch kann ich mich nicht so gut ausdrücken. Also falls möglich bitte allen Blogern weitersagen wie inspirierend ihre Karten für mich sind, danke :D Lieben Gruß aus Wien Maria
