A Special Birthday

Just a quick post to share a card I made for a special lady  - Shery Russ.

It is a double celebration for Shery - 3rd Anniversary for her amazing stamp company, STAMPlorations and also turning the Big 40! Congrats Shery, I hope you had a wonderful celebration for both achievements.

The cupcake image is from STAMPlorations and I used Zig CCRB Markers directly on stamp and then a brush with water.
I added a shadow with a grey marker and of course my favourite Wink of Stellar for some shimmer. The sentiment is from Concord & 9th.

Mixed Media Card Challenge

A new month is upon us and that means it's time for a new Mixed Media Card Challenge. The theme this month is 'SPARKLE' and the optional element is 'GEMS" -  I predict a very pretty gallery of cards!

I just received these gorgeous heart and floral dies from Concord & 9th, called Layers of Love and decided they would suit this month's theme.
To begin I painted the front panel on watercolour paper with Peerless Water Colours. When it was dry I  die cut the floral heart window. At the same time, I die cut the lined heart window from the card base.and the floral sprays.  Then I coloured the flowers with Zig CCRB markers and spritzed with water. When dry, I added Wink of Stellar and Stickles for some shimmer and sparkle. The sentiment is from Winnie and Walter and was heat embossed with a sparkly gold powder.
To finish  I added some gems and sparkly gold thread.

Pop on over to the Mixed Media Card Challenge to see to get more sparkly inspiration and then join in the fun. You can link up your card here.

ETA: I am adding this card to the Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies Challenge and Virginia's View #22 (Summer) Challenge.
