Hi there, today I'd like to share a little birthday card that I made using the May Reveal Happy Flowers Set 840. This is such a cute little set.
I stamped the image in Black StazOn on watercolor cardstock as I was going to color it with the new Nuvo Aqua Flow Markers. They are so vibrant and they blend really nicely too.
I only used four colors for my little scene: Spiced Ginger and Red Apple for the flowers and Fresh Green and Evergreen Fern for the leaves.
They color very similarly to Copics. Go in and paint the lighter color over the darker shade to blend the shades. The image was die cut with Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals Large and a little Memento Summer Sky was sponged around the image before removing the die.I then added some Orange Crush Glitter to the flowers with the Quickie Glue Pen.
I took a piece of light blue corrugated cardstock and randomly applied the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse Cornflower Blue with a spatula. I actually used my heat gun to quickly dry the mousse and this made the mousse "bubble" which I happened to really like. Will be doing this again.
The sentiment was from the Silhouettes Set 493, one of my SNS all time favorite sets! I stamped this in Versamark and then heat set with Black Detail. This was fussy cut and layered to a little piece of the corrugated backing.
The backing was layered to a piece of watercolor cardstock edged with blue Copic B63 and was then layered to the white card base. The image and sentiment were attached with Mounting Tape. Then I applied the Nuvo Crystal Drops English Mustard and Ripened Pumpkin sporadically around my image and sentiment.
That finished up my card for today!.
