Birthday wishes


Just a quick post with a card for Simon Says Stamp Blog Monday Challenge Floral or Fauna.

I used My Favorite Things Wildflowers and stamped each flower after coloring it with a watercolor crayon. I sprayed a little water on it before putting it to paper.

I added some micro glaze on top of the flowers to help resist other ink.

I sprayed through a stencil with tea dye Tim Holtz distress spray and dried it. I flicked some zig metallic water colors, stamped the image with Walnut stain and tied on twine.

I popped up the water color panel with foam tape on a yellow card stock base.

This went quickly but I really like how it turned out. I want to work more with the micro glaze. It seems like a cool product.

Hope you have a great day!


  1. This card turned out beautifully! I really love the way you've blended the flowers into the background with the white portions. The background pattern reminded me of a lovely piece of garden trellis and the twine at the top gives it a clever rustic feel. You did a really lovely job on this and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
