I had a birthday card to make today for a special friend. I decided to combine two challenges - to CASE a designer at Where Creativity meets C9, and Off the Edge at CASual Fridays.
I chose to case Lindsey Larsen's card from September last year - she used flowers across the top of her card, and a bold sentiment with a mixture of fonts (the sentiment is from CASual Fridays and from Concord & 9th). You can check out her card HERE. I mixed it up by cutting the top edge of my card around some of the Concord & 9th floral image.
I stamped in Old Paper Distress ink, then coloured with Zig clean color real brush markers and water. I stamped the image over the top of the watercolouring with Old Paper again to add a bit more definition, but I was going for an "almost not there" kind of look, so didn't want a bold outline, which is why I chose Distress Ink - I knew it would diffuse into the water. I did, however, want a bold sentiment, so the first line is stamped in Versafine Onyx Black, and the "lovely" is stamped multiple times with Hero Arts Soft Blossom shadow ink. I finished with a little Wink of Stella on the flowers and some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
