Watercolor Poppy Birthday
Well hello, I am back with a post today of a card I made using my Rubbernecker 2 step stamp set Poppy Fields . Rubbernecker has some beautiful sets and also some of the funniest saying stamps I have ever seen.
I made this card following the sketch this week at Mojo Monday.
The theme is "tall & Skinny", my card measures 8.5 x 4 inches and fits into a business size #10 envelope.
It took me a couple tries to line of the two stamps but then again it is not supposed to be perfect. :.) The happy birthday is a Verve stamp. I did some faux stitching around the flower and also in the scalloped circle.
The background paper I made using watercolor paper and my water soluble crayons. I am having funny making some of these papers. I first spritz the watercolor paper with water then scribble on it with the color crayons I wanted, then sprayed it again pretty heavy with water so the colors would blend together. After it was all dry I sprayed it with Tattered Angels spray so it has a sparkle to it. Over at Sentimental Sundays this week the challenge is to make your own background paper so I will be entering this card in that challenge also.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you enjoyed my card today.
