Blue flowers for a happy birthday

Back to my comfort zone today - blue, watercolour, and flowers!
 I used the Wplus9 Kind Soul stamp set, along with Zig clean colour real brush markers, which I scribbled onto my craft sheet and sprayed with water, before dunking my stamped image into the puddles of colour multiple times. I dried it off, then added some detail using Copic markers in blues and blue-greens. I added a stamped sentiment (from a different Wplus9 set) and then decided it needed a strip of blue along the top. I then finished with some Wink of Stella and a row of faux stitching.
 I'll be sharing this card at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - their theme this week is "Anything Goes".

 Thanks for visiting :)


  1. The COPICS made all the difference in providing that details verses mushy contrast. I've just completed a set of cards that didn't seem quite finished. They needed something else and your idea for the narrow strip of color on the top is brilliant. Beautiful card!

  2. Beautiful floral card, love those flowers.
