Hawaiian Hibiscus Birthday Card



I have a pretty birthday card to share with you today.

I used the Close To My Heart Hawaiian Hibiscus stamp set on this one.





First I stamped with Versamark ink and then embossed the images with white embossing powder onto the watercolor paper.

I coloured in the flowers and leaves by putting a few drops of different inks onto a paint pallet, and spritzed the cardstock with water, then dipped my waterbrush into the ink and added it to the wet paper.

After it dried, I cut out each image with my scissors, and added them with 3D foam tape.

Last step, I added a little glitter with the retired glitz glitter gel, using a paint brush to basically paint it onto the flowers.






Happy creating!  :)

Paper:  Watercolor paper; White Daisy, Black CS

Inks:  Versamark, Black
