Unforgettable Happy Birthday

I love this pretty flower bouquet from Penny Black. I wanted a soft look to the card and so I decided to use my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I stamped the image with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. This is the easiest way to watercolor. The embossing creates little wells were you can add your color and it won’t bleed into the adjacent petals.

I watercolored the background, but it was a little splotchy and so I ink blended it with Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass, which gave a smoother look.

The sentiment is from Winnie & Walter’s Sentimental Birthday set and was stamped and embossed as well in the lower right of the card.

I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle and added sticky back foam to the back for dimension. It was then adhered to a side folding cardbase and the card was done. Very quick and easy card.
