Splendid Roses birthday card


Hello, hello!

Erica back on the blog today with a card you might recognise a little bit. If you don't, check out my last couple of cards over here on this blog post and you will see how one stamped panel has now ended up being three different cards.

This card is basically the coloured version of those two cards. If you don't have time to check out my last post I stamped up lots of Splendid Roses on a slightly larger than an A2 panel and then I foiled it as well as used the negative piece for a second card. As I had a big stamped panel ready to go, I decided to colour it in using my Zig markers. To make it really colourful, I used a different colour for each one of the flowers. It's only the small buds that are the same colour. Oh and the leaves too.




I managed to smudge the colours a little bit in the space between the flowers and leaves so I thought I'd colour that too to make the coloured blooms really pop. At first I toyed with the idea of starting out dark around the edges and go lighter towards the middle but scrapped that idea pretty fast. Due to more smudging... Yep, it wasn't my best idea but at this point I was committed so I just kept on going until all the white space was covered with the black.

To add some interest to the panel I decided to use some dies directly on it. I used the Dotted Ovals creative dies from Studio Katia but decided against popping any of them up off the actual card. They are all flat and apart from the sentiment, which is raised just a tiny, tiny but, this would quality as a one-layer card. I don't tend to do those very often. I'm more of a 'let's go to town' kind of gal, me.



The 'Happy Birthday' sentiment is from Beautiful Blooms-Sweet Rose and I stamped it in black ink on a thin strip of white card stock. I also added a bit of black card stock behind this and trimmed it down so it is just enough to frame it but doesn't take up too much space on the actual card. This whole shebang was glued down on a black card base but I had also trimmed down the panel enough to leave a thin strip of black showing on each side. I think this frames the card nicely without adding anything fussy.

Surprisingly, I yet again decided against sequins. I am as shocked as you must be! That's two (technically three) cards in a row without sequins...! I ought to go to the doctor and get checked out as usually it's bling overload when I'm involved. Maybe I should be worried??

That's it from me today but I will be back before you know it!

Happy crafting from Erica

I have had my Faber-Castell Polochromos pencils for quite a while now, I do believe they were part of my wedding anniversary present last year.. in July... so yeah, they have been around for a while but I've felt too intimidated to try them out. Nuts or what?? Well, for today's card I decided to be brave and just get on with it. And wow. Now I can't believe I waited to long to try them! I decided to use black card stock and gold glitter heat embossing for my card and the colours practically glow!! It's so cool!
