A Lovely Birthday!


MIM this week features a watercolor technique, using 
PTI's coverplates. Ashley shares her endless talents and creates a beauty of 
a card on Nichole's blog here:


With a large family, my birthday stash is easily depleted, so
here's a birthday card using the Quatrefoil Die.


I followed Ashley's lead, and used re-inkers on Canson watercolor paper.
Vintage Linen flowers, white embossed and also colored with reinkers.


Inside finished with stamped off and masked flowers,
and sentiment from Inside Out: Birthday.

This technique was so much fun to do,
can't wait to try it again!

  9. Absolutely stunning birthday card Nancy! I love how your background didn't come out all neat and perfect, even though it is perfect just the way it is (if that makes sense?!)!! Your colors are just so bright and vibrant, and your flowers just really pop against that background! LOVE everything about this beautiful card!! :0)
