Happy Birthday Mary!
Hi everyone. Today I'm sharing a birthday card I made for my good friend MaryH (Carolina Cards by MaryH). Thankfully it arrived in the mail on time. :) Happy Birthday Mary. I hope you are having a wonderful day!
I have done a card similar to this before, using the same tulip image done with watercolour spritz technique. That's where you ink up the image using markers, spritz with water and stamp onto watercolour paper. Some stamps seem to be perfect with certain techniques ... and this is one of them. This time I included a splash watercoloured background that has lots of colour (click here to see my video tutorial). I think it compliments the image nicely.
I didn't want to cover any of it up, so used vellum for my sentiment banner. I added a few sequins for a bit of sparkle.
Hope you enjoyed my card today. Thanks for coming by for a visit!
