Fiona loves flowers


Stamping Bella- uptown girl Fiona loves flowers

Stampin up!- birthday blooms

Copic sketch markers- E21,42,43,44,50&93. R85. BV0000,000,00,11. V22. RV34. R81. YG03,25. Y13,15,18. B00. BG53. T0,1,3. 0. 

Memento ink pad- tuxedo black 

Copic friendly card stock. Lilac Pearl card blank. 

I stamped my image and sentiment on to a piece of card stock, which had been trimmed to fit my card front  leaving a small border. I coloured the image, then glued it on to the card blank. This makes a really simple card, that really lets the colouring be the main focus of the card. The Pearl card stock adds a nice shimmer to frame the image. The birthday sentiment could easily be changed to a thank you too.

Big birthday

  • My favourite things- big birthday die
  • Stampin up- crazy about you
  • Tim holtz distress inks- salty ocean, shabby shutters, mowed lawn.
  • Black card blank and watercolour cardstock 

I cut down my piece of watercolour cardstock and added water. I simply squished the ink pad onto a sheet of plastic, and used a big damp paint brush to pick up the colours. I added them to the card in lines and blended them together slightly. I let this dry. I diecut the big birthday and glued it on to the panel. I stamped the ‘to you’ underneath. I finally added the panel to a black card blank to finish.

I love this image so kept the card super simple.
