Birthday Wishes

Hi there and welcome back!  It's time for a new Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers and I am hosting this week!  I've chosen Lovely Lipstick, Daffodil Delight and Basic Gray for the colors this week, with a dessert option to add a tag.

I had a vision of what I wanted my card to look like but as I watercolored the images and tried to create the background, it just wasn't what I wanted (okay, it was awful!!).  So I went back to square one and decided to use the same images but color the main flower with Copic markers and have the majority of the other stamped images be white or uncolored.  I've seen a lot of cards with this design idea over the last year so I thought I would give it try.

After finishing the stamping and Copic coloring, I used the matching dies to cut out the images.  The pieces were then layered on a white panel previous die cut with a stitched, scallop rectangle die.  I used some Linen Thread to gently wrap around the panel and attach the die cut sentiment tag, then mount the panel on a gray card base.

Thanks so much for visiting, it's always so appreciated!  I've added a link to the challenge above, so I hope you'll swing over there and find time to join in!
