Here at MFT, we have a deep affinity for flowers of all kinds...whimsical doodles, elegantly realistic renderings, and dimensional blooms that add texture and depth. We're celebrating a garden of birthday blooms in this month's challenge with a full bouquet of cards featuring flowers.
For this card I started by heat embossing Blooming Hydrangeas Stamp Set on Ranger Watercolor Paper and white detail embossing powder using the smooth side of the paper to get the best impression I could. Next I watercolored the flowers using Flower Fresh Color Burst Trio and a waterbrush, matted it with Purple Rain card stock, and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape.
Happy Birthday Script Die-namics was cut from Gumdrop Green card stock and twice with Sweet Tooth card stock, stacked with spray adhesive and adhered on top of the watercolored flowers. To finish off I add some clear drops.
And that’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog to see how to play and maybe win a prize!
See you soon!
