|Apothecary Art Birthday Card|
This is the card I made
for my sister-in-law's 60th birthday.
I couldn't show you last week,
because I hadn't given it to her yet!
(not that she probably reads this blog, but you never know ....)
Sue loves anything blue and traditional,
so I thought she would like this combination.
I have to say I was heavily influenced by this video
and learnt to colour with
watercolour crayons and a blender pen
for the first time.
I've always used water with the crayons before,
which works best on watercolour paper.
But this technique works well on the normal
Whisper White card.
I had a lovely relaxing time colouring the roses and background,
then added background stamps,
embossing, die cut numbers, lace, button and pearls
This stamp set (with matching dies) has disappeared now
with the end of the Autumn-Winter mini,
but I have a feeling we'll be seeing it again very soon!
