Stampendous Bouquet for you : Happy Birthday card

Hiya Friends!

Am still in Spring mood! Yet another floral birthday card here for you all.

This lovely bunch of florals is made using a gift from a dear Crafty friend, Kanan Pandya, whose watercolored cards are my ever favorite!  She has sent me this Stampendous: Bouquet for you Stampset few years ago and I love using it often!

You can check my earlier creations using this stampset here and here

Masked and made into cute floral spray using No line coloring with Fabercastell polychromos pencils. These were colored during Kathyrac's dailymarker coloring contest. Now made it into a card. I colored the fussy cut ends with black marker to give a neat look.

  • Took a watercolored cardstock.
  • Splashed with water centrally and added Limegreen Brusho crystals over it and heat set it.
  • Went over with Prima Marketing- Finnabair Lightpaste with TCW 'Art is' stencil diagonally over the colored portion of the card.
  • Stamped the sentiment from Inspired by Stamping using Memento Black.
  • Matted the panel over A2 sized Black card base by trimming it a bit.
  • The added the fussy cut florals with foam adhesives.
  • Couple of purple fussy cut butterflies with few clear dew droplets to finish off the card.
Hope you like it!
