Birthday Wishes

Hi Poppy fans! I have a bright and happy card for you today, using some of the new stamps and dies just released.

I've been playing with alcohol inks, learning some of the wonderful things they can do, and created a couple of 'artsy' backgrounds.

From one of them, I cut 2 jars from the newly released, Jar Collection. Jars are so popular right now, and Poppy's given us 3 sizes in one die set.

I cut all 3 of the images from Peony Stems and Blossom from watercolor card stock, and stamped with Hero Arts Wet Cement. It's a favorite I use to give a light line to the image I'm watercoloring. The blooms were colored with Zig Clean Colors.

My sentiment is from is from Sending Scribbles, stamped with Wet Cement on a homemade banner.

See the doilies around the mouth of the jars? They are dies cuts from one of the new, Petit Four Stitched Borders.

A closeup of the jars shows how I removed some of the color around the edges with a copic 0. By using the 0 pen, you can also add hi lights and suggest a bottom to the jars. I drew in the stems to the flowers with copic W5.

Hope you enjoyed my card and how it was done, and are inspired to play with some of the fabulous new stamps and dies!
