A Belated Birthday Card

Hey there and welcome. I hope all of you are doing well. For today's card I used an image, which is an oldie but a goodie, and I colored it using my watercolor pencils. I also found some leftover scraps of water colored paper, which I used to die cut the beautiful borders. They are lacy, but I thought it would be fun to use them as waves and simulate water. Before adhering all the prepared elements, I added some clouds to the front of my card base. I don’t have any cloud stencils, so I drew some cloud shapes on the back of the release paper of double-sided tape, cut them out and used them with Tumbled Glass distress ink. Then I adhered the image and the borders with foam tape and stamped the sentiment. As a finishing touch, I added some gems and white dots, and my card was done.

I hope you like how my card turned out.
Thanks for stopping by and keep safe!
Stamps used: Noah’s Ark (Whimsy Stamps), Hang in There (Lawn Fawn)
Die used: Lacey Edgers 1 (Pinkfresh Studio)

Such a well thought out card. I adore the way you used the curly frame for the waves, adds super dimension and the way you created the clouds is inspired and then that wonderfully coloured image, super. Thank you for joining Time Out x
