I'm still counting down the family birthdays at the moment, so the below is another card to share with you.
It started out as a bit of an experiment as I wanted to see how Colour Blooms blend together, so I randomly sprayed a few different colours, using them to spray and also make droplets.
As Cololur Blooms are water based they will react with moisture, so I used a TCW stencil and a baby wipe to bleach back some of the colour. Then I used the scripty stamp from the PaperArtsy Hotpicks 1303 set and stamped it with Archival black ink.
I had this piece of card on my table on which I'd used a Prima stencil with Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste. I cut a stip from it and then sprayed it with Colour Bloom sprays.
I love the new Ellen Vargo 10 stamp set, I think this tulip is gorgeous ! I stamped it with Archival black ink and clear embossed it. I then stamped the flower head again and embossed that too. I've painted both parts with Luminarte paints, love how they blend together, and then layered the flower pieces up.
I made a further vertical panel and stamped it with one of the small circle stamps from the Ellen Vargo 09 stamp set.
The tape measure is something I picked up on one of my visits to The Bead Scene and the sentiment is a Tim Holtz stamp and I've stamped it onto a scrap of card that's been sprayed with Colour Bloom sprays.
I'm slowly ticking off my Birthday card list, just not sure when I'll get started on my Christmas card list !
