Hello and good day to you. I hope you are all doing ok and taking some time to enjoy this craft we all love. I find even when I don't feel much like crafting, if just get in the craft room (or wherever you create) I start to play with my stamps and dies , before you know it I feel better.
I used this Bold Striped Stencil along with my blender brushes to create as soft background for my floral birthday card. I love any stripes pared with blooms.
I heat embossed the Wild Rose Stem with white embossing powder for a softer look then I watercolored my image. You will see below that I ended up cutting the leaves and tucked them in the corners of the card.
I used regular cardstock this time, I added some water to each petal then little bit of paint and let the water move most of it. I didn't worry about it being perfect, just added color.
When laying out my flower on the front panel, I decided to cut apart the leaves so that I could place them in the corners of the card. Simply sniped and glued.
After completing the card I stamped the sentiment from Poppystamps Peony Bouquet. There are many beautiful sentiment from the Wild Rose stamp set but I needed one I could tuck in the center left of the blooms.
I hope you get to spend some happy time crafting, stay safe sweet crafty friends.
