Happy Birthday Sis

My sister Sharyn and my hubby both share the same birthday so I thought  I would show you the card I made for my sister today and the card for my hubby tomorrow. I have seen many examples of this type of card at SCS and wanted to try it for myself but I didn’t quite do it the same way.

Firstly, I stamped the rose image from Fifth Avenue Floral 4 times in Versamark on watercolour paper and then embossed it using white embossing powder. I spritzed each image with a little water and watercoloured the flowers using my aquapainter and ink. The colours I used were Regal Rose, So Saffron, Pink Pirouette and Pixie Pink. I just added colour to the petals in a random pattern adding more ink in some areas and less in others. I then cut out sections of the 4 roses and layered them I then paper pierced the Regal Rose mat and layered it with So Saffron and Whisper White. I stamped the So Saffron card base with the rose stamp in Versamark and added a greeting from It’s Your Birthday.

I was really happy with how the card turned out and my sister was thrilled.

See you tomorrow with my next card.

I love your roses Chrissie. I had my first crack at them at a w'shop a couple of Friday's ago....just not in such beautiful subtle tones. I am sure your sister would have been wrapped.
