Apothecary Art 60th Birthday Card

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!
