I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then stamped up a piece of Black Licorice card stock with Versamark and heat embossed it with white detail embossing powder. Next up is a piece of Ranger watercolor paper, stamped with Simply Circles Background and Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. Then, using a medium water brush, I water colored inside each circle with Orange Fizz dye ink, Spearmint dye ink, Daffodil dye ink, and Cotton Candy dye ink. I then filled in the black areas with a fine line marker and finished off by splattering it with clean water. The sentiment is from LJD You’re the Sweetest and was also stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. Everything except the flower and leaf flourish was cut with elements from Blueprints 23 Die-namics. The flower was cut from Orange Fizz card stock with Rolled Scalloped Rose Die-namics and the leaf was cut from Spearmint card stock with Simple Leaf Flourishes Die-namics.
A sentiment from LJD Birthday Greetings was stamped on the inside with Black Licorice dye ink.
