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!  :)

Supplies used are all CTMH:
Paper:  Watercolor paper; White Daisy, Black CS
Stamps: Hawaiian Hibiscus, Joyful Birthday
Inks:  Versamark, Black
Re-inkers:  Pear, Pomegranate, Sunset, Honey
Other:  White Embossing Powder, 3D foam tape, Waterbrush, Micro-tip Scissors, Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel -retired
