Beautiful Birthday

Sometimes the creating process takes off on it's own.  I was die cutting the flowers, and it happened that the washi tape I was using to hold down the dies in position was the green grid one.  And "Voila!" thought that would go so well with the flowers.

For the background, I mixed in some distress inks into the embossing paste and used a leaf stencil.

I first water-coloured the flowers with Distress Inks, but then thought it was a bit pale.  Here's the before photo...

So I added highlights with Prismacolor pencils. And black enamel accents to the centres.

  5. I love the softness of these beautifully colored flowers and the leaves behind them are a fabulous detail, love the texture of the embossing paste and, of course, the washi tape was a stroke of genus.
