SHC - Floral Birthdays

Morning!! I'm here with my weekly Seven Hills Craft blog post. Today I have a couple of floral birthday cards to share with you:

Stamps: Concord & 9th - In Bloom; Mama Elephant - Birthday Messages; Altenew - Just a Number
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Versafine Clair - Nocturne; Gina K - Lemon Drop, Wild Dandelion, Applemint, Keylime, Warm Cocoa, Soft Stone
Accessories: White Card; SU Card - Daffodil Delight, Grey Granite; C&9 - In Bloom Stencils

I'm submitting this card to AAA Birthday - AAAB#33 where they want us to use two favourite colours.

I used my MISTI to stamp the large image onto white card. I removed the image and used the matching stencils to add colour to the flowers and leaves. In the stencil set there is a stencil that allows us to add stripes to the image. I used a soft grey ink for the stripes. To finish the panel I stamped a tiny birthday greeting to the bottom right coner of the panel. I rounded the corners of the finished panel and layered it on yellow and grey mats. I adhered the finished panel to the front of a square note card. Inside the card, I cut a mat layer of yellow card. On the white panel, I added a fun birthday greeting along with a couple more flowers stamped in yellow.

My next card uses a water spray to give a totally different look to the same stamp:

Stamps: Concord & 9th - In Bloom; Avery Elle - Inside Birthday Greeting
Inks: Versafine Clair - Nocturne; Gina K - Dusty Rose, Red Velvet
Accessories: White Card; SU Card - Raspberry Ripple; Zig Clear Color Brushes

I'm submitting this card to The Flower Challenge - TFC#64 where they want to see a monochromatic colour theme, and to CAS Mix Up Card Challenge - CASMU#94 where they want to see loose watercolour.

I used Zig Clear Color brushes to add colour to the image and lightly spritzed with water before stamping on regular white card stock. I allowed the stamp to sit on the card to ensure that all the colour transferred to the card. I like the loose texture that this technique gives. When completely dry, I added a bold birthday greeting at the top of the panel. I layered the panel on red card and added it to a white note card. Inside, I cut a mat layer of red card. On the white panel, I added a simple birthday greeting and another flower stamped to match the front of the card.

That's all from me today. As always thanks for stopping by and leaving comments - I really do appreciate them. See you soon.
