ID: MC May/15 - ColorBurst Flowers - Hello - Those Who Find - BDay Wishes card
size: 5" x 7"h

Created: May 10, 2015

As I mentioned yesterday, got my Color Burst powdered pigments from Ken Oliver. Very nice. They work as well as the Brusho's, but are easier to use since they already come in a nozzle type dispenser... There are only 6 colors at this time, so it's pretty hard to make a mistake with them. I like that Brusho's have 24 colors...

I'm using the newest "Hello" die on the outside a quote stamp on the inside from Quietfire Design as well as an eCut from Suzanne available on the Silhouette onLine store.

("Always be My Friend" 3pce set); ("10 tiny sentiments" - 10pce set); ("Hello" die); eCut File ("Happy Birthday");


Side folded my white cardstock. Embossed using Ecstasy crafts "Leaves" embossing folder.

I sprinkled the Color Burst powders onto misted Canson Biggie watercolor paper (smoother - backside), then misted some more. Dried and stamped the flowers (AlteNew ""Floral Motifs") using Versafine Toffee" and embossing with Queen's Gold embossing powder. Fussy cut around the flowers to create the border.

Used a slot punch to thread my salmon colored narrow ribbon through.

Adhered the border to the card front, adhering the ribbon tails to the inside.

Die cut the "Hello" from a scrap section of the background. Then cut 3 more layers, coloring them with a blue Prisma colored marker, as well as the edges of the first die cut. adhered all 4 layers together and then onto card front.

Added the large mauve rhinestones to the flower centers.

Inside (flat)



On the inside: hit the high points of the embossed background using Distress "Iced Spruce" and then with "Peeled Paint". Adhered a piece of scrap paper towel (from my Gelli print session last Sunday at Artsy market...) using a glue stick.

eCut the "birthday" at 5"w from white cardstock. Colored with a black watercolor marker, then applied Versamark and embossed with "Oak Leak Olive" embossing powder - twice - to get a nice thick coat.

Stamped the "wishes" onto white cardstock with the black, punched it out with Whale of a Punch "Butterfly", sponged using dirty sponges (raspberry & yellow), adhered to birthday word.

eCut a bunch of flowers (AlteNew Floral Motifs") from translucent vellum, stamped with versamark and embossed with Queen's Gold. Adhered to card with Glossy Accents.

Stamped the quote with the Black, clear embossed. Added faux stitch lines using a Prisma Colored Marker in an olive tone.
