One more birthday card to fit in and this one uses a gorgeous image from Alex Syberia Designs. This set was part of their first Kickstarter launch of physical stamps and I love it. AND, they just announced their second release. Super exciting!
I stamped the image from Hello Lovely in Versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder on watercolor paper. Then I pulled out my Daniel Smith Watercolors and started coloring. I colored this over a few days taking a little at a time. I keep working on shading and trying to learn to keep light colors and highlights without overworking.
Once I was done, I added some splatters with white gouache and gold metallic ink. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the image and chose a sentiment from the set and gold embossed on black. I thought the woodgrain was a pretty background that would not detract from the flower. I did add a few splatters to that too, because why not?!
Make sure to go over and check out the latest release at Alex Syberia Designs. Thanks for stopping in today. See you soon!
