Happy Birthday!

So many of my friends are having birthdays this month that I’m struggling to keep up with the production! 😉 But its so nice to start crafting daily again after such a long pause of… 10 whole days and my mojo is slowly coming back.

This card was also made to celebrate the 3rd birthday at AAA Cards Challenge! They’re having a huge blog hop till the 10th of June so hop over quick!

I made this card with a combination of stamping/watercolouring/stamping again. I used the layered stamps from the beautiful Peony bouquet set and stamped it with Altenew inks on watercolour paper. I then added some details with my zigs clean clear color brushes, blended with my water brush, and then stamped the detailed layer with Altenew inks again.

I added some paint splatters with my acrylic paint before stamping the sentiment from Impressions Obsessions, with Versafine ink. I cut a panel from this and adhered it to the card from Hero Arts, and that was it!

Hope you liked it and thanks for stopping by. I would love to know what you think of my card!

  1. I love this card – peonies are my favourite flower – am I the only one who started singing Edelweiss when I got to the sentiment lol! Thanks for joining in with us at Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  2. Oh my, Gwendolyn, what a stunning card! Your watercolouring is perfect, making those flowers come alive. Such brilliant colours, too. Adding the paint splatters really balances the card beautifully and compliments the sentiment. Great idea to add the scalloped border at the bottom. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
