Birthday Blooms Card
What a fun card I made this week using the new Birthday Blooms stamp set from the Occasions catalog from Stampin Up.
I wanted to try a technique that I saw recently, I have changed it up a bit, but LOVE how it turned out!
I embossed the beautiful rose image with gold embossing powder and used a blender pen and ink to start coloring the rose. The ink colors used are Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo and Celery Green. To create the background I used Pool Party ink and a sponge to apply the ink staying clear of the rose image. If I were to do this again, I think I would create a mask for the rose, this would have made it easier to color the background. Oh well, I love how it turned out!
If you are interested in this stamp set this is a great time to purchase from Stampin UP. It is the Sale A Bration time and for every 50 dollars you spend you receive a FREE product! Such a deal!
