You maybe starting here so welcome or you could have come from Mel Pagano.
I sat down with the catalogue with a cappuccino this morning and chose the card I was going to make as I had decided that I was going to use the Beautiful Day stamp set as it had not seen ink yet.
I have combined the beautiful bloom with the new Watercolour Pencils in Flirty Flamingo and Cajun Craze with Crushed Curry for the stamens and then leaves in Granny Apple Green and Garden Green and then blended the colours together with some water in my aqua painter.
I have also used the August limited time only (available only until stock lasts) Stitched Season framelits for the layers of leaves in Soft Sea Foam and Gold Foil which I think make the bloom standout even more, unfortunately it's a dull day here in Woodside and I had trouble getting a good photograph without shadows.
Finally, I gold embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment on the bottom, which was easy as I inked up in Versamark and put a piece of scrap paper over the small words under it so they would not stamp on the card.
