Birthday Celebrations

It would seem our mild start to Autumn has ended as the last few days have been filled with rain, wind and cooler temperatures. Of course it had to come but on a positive note it does mean we can finally get out those winter woollies that have been waiting to be worn :-)

Today's card was made for a friend's recent birthday and doesn't have any sign of cool weather about it LOL - and has safely arrived so I can now share it with you.

The main image is stamped on watercolour paper and coloured using an Aqua painter and ink pads before being fussy cut and added with dimensionals. It's still my favourite way to colour and I love that the lines in this image give you some ideas on where to add shading and detail.
A few scattered gold embossed dots, a gold Washi strip and thread add a little bit of bling whilst trying not to take away too much from the star blooms :-)

Card stock: Melon Mambo, Whisper White (thick), Watercolor paper
Designer Series Paper: Brights Stack
Inks: Black Stazon, Momento Tuxedo Black, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Versamark
Stamps: Birthday Blooms, Suite Sayings
Accessories: Gold EP, Gold Metallic Thread, Metallic Sequins Assortment, Gold Washi Tape (Saleabration), Aquapainter, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you are enjoying the change of Seasons and taking time to enjoy the little things about today.

Happy stamping until next time,
