Blushing Birthday Bloom

Yes I know, a second post!  Well, I made this card last weekend and really liked it but didn't have time to post, so I decided not to put it off any longer.  It's another card with the beautiful Birthday Blooms large flower image.  Sigh...I cannot seem to get enough of water coloring this gorgeous image.

The flower image was stamped on Watercolor paper with Archival Basic Black ink, then colored using an Aqua Painter with Blushing Bride, Watermelon Wonder, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow ink.  The stamens were colored with a So Saffron marker.  After drying, it was fussy cut with my Paper Snips, then Clear Wink of Stella was brushed onto the flower petals.

The Blushing Bride base was covered with a slightly smaller piece of Birthday Bouquet designer series paper.  Next a banner of Blushing Bride Glimmer paper and a horizontal strip of Delicate Details Lace Tape were added.  A couple pieces that had been languishing unused finally found a home, including the Textured Old Olive piece of card stock punched with the Curly Label punch and the piece of Blushing Bride scallop circle under the flower that had been die cut with the Perfect Pennant Big Z die and sprayed with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch.

Okay, I'm done for today!  Thanks for visiting and I'd love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a comment!!
