Hi everyone, today I would like to share this fun birthday card project with you all where I created a double look with only one stamp.
I stamped this image from Impression Obsession (H8889) onto watercolour paper using water-proof ink. Next I can start the colouring process. For today’s project I’m using my Spectrum Noir AquaBlend pencils. In this first step I mixed the Pineapple one with the Bright Green one (and since green contains yellow I don’t create brown). After applying both colours I activate them using my water brush.
For the leaves I picking the Aubergine colour. Also activating the colour with my water brush.
To darken the petals a bit I’m adding another layer using the Jungle Green pencil combined with the Pineapple one. Mixing them again using my water brush.
For some added interest in the leaves I’m adding some Rose to the purple mix. Again activating the colour with water.
And finally I colour around the image using the Aegean Blue pencil washing the colour outwards. After drying I add in some highlights using a white gel pen and than I fussy cut the image leaving a small border.
You can find all the Spectrum Noir AquaBlend pencils that I used on today’s project here:
Now that my focal image and first flower are finished I can work on my background: for this I die cut a rectangle panel from the same watercolour paper. I stamped the same flower image onto the panel, trying to create a lighter image than stamping the first flower and making sure I don’t stamp the entire stem of the flower. I also stamp my sentiment (Altenew “Birthday Builder”) onto this panel.
For colouring the second flower I use the same colours as I used for the first flower but with a lighter hand (so that I looks like the second flower is more in the background, further away from the viewer).
Time to put my card together: I die cut a slightly larger rectangle panel from matching purple card stock and adhere both rectangle panels together using liquid glue. This combination I adhere to my white linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape. Next I adhere the fussy cut flower on top also using one millimetre thick foam tape and to finish my project I adhere some sparkling clear sequins using Ranger Medium Matte from the small bottle.
And that is it for today, I wish you a creative day!
