Watercolored Painted Harvest Birthday

Did I mention that I love this new set, Painted Harvest, available in the Holiday Catalog?  It didn't even make my list when I placed my preorder and now it's one of my favorites!

For this card I tried a watercolor technique.  I spritzed  a watercolor panel with water and also spritzed the inked stamp before putting ink to paper.  I used Crushed Curry for the larger petal stamp and Peek-a-boo Peach for the smaller petal stamp.    The center is Early Espresso and I used Early Espresso ink for the greeting as well.

The stem and leaves were stamped with Pear Pizazz spritzing the stamp after inking and before putting to paper.  Make certain the watercolor paper is completely dry before stamping the greeting.  I used the Happy Birthday greeting from Butterfly Basics.  It's one of my favorites, I love the mix of fonts.

I finished it of by adding some splatters.  I used my Aqua Painter with a lot of water dipped in some Early Espresso ink (squeeze your closed ink pad to get some ink on the lid and use that ink).  I distressed the edges of the watercolor panel, mounted it to a Crushed Curry layer and that went onto a Thick Whisper White card base.  Oh, I also tied on some Linen Thread and tied a bow.

It was a fun card to make!  I gave it to my mom for her birthday and she loved it!  The best thing is that I was able to give it to her in person.  She was visiting me on her birthday.  Not sure that has happened...ever!

Thanks for looking.  Hope you enjoy my projects!
