Birthday card


Here's a card I made last night for DD1's dear friend's birthday. The focal image (Heather's Stamping Haven) is stamped and embossed on watercolour paper and coloured with Tombows using Krista Schneider's watercolouring technique. It's matted on black, with a little border doodled in. The card base is stamped with a daisy (Stamping Bella) and accented with patterned paper (Basic Grey) and Adirondack dimensional pearls in Butterscotch. The focal image is liberally accented with stickles, which really adds pop in real life. Nothing too out of my comfort zone here, but that's the way I like it right now. I'm on the brink of a significant change in jobs, so I'm way out of my comfort zone there. Some happy colouring time was just what I needed.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy stamping :-)
