Breathtaking Bouquet ~ Happy Birthday Card

Guess what? I am finally on holidays!! CRAFTY TIME!

Today I have something fun to share with you and I hope you love it as much as I do.
I have used one of my absolute top picks from the Mini Catalogue and that is the Breathtaking Bouquet Background stamp.
This one is retiring, and has not sold out yet so BE QUICK!!

Here's a look at the finished card where you can see just how much COLOUR is in this card.
It is just so bright and happy and that is something that this fun background stamp is just so perfect for!
In times like these when a lot of us are stuck inside, this is the perfect therapeutic stamp to just colour your life away!

I have used a basic card design that I saw featured in the back of the Mini Catalogue and it really did inspire this whole card.

I have used such a huge mix of colours to colour in this stamp which I have heat embossed in Black on Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper.
My biggest tip for doing this is to stamp using the Stamparatus, as when using Fluid 100 Watercolour paper which is quite thick and textured, you may need to stamp it multiple times. 

I have then used my Aqua Painters and a mixture of; Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Granny Apple Green, Calypso Coral, Lovely Lipstick, Pumpkin Pie and Mango Melody Inks to colour my whole background in.
Tip when water colouring: Add little bits at a time and go back in and add more colour bit by bit. You can always add more, but you can't take it away!

Here's a look at the finished card close up where you can see some of the texture and detail.
I have added one of the beautiful 'happy' words die cut from the Well Written dies and a 'birthday' sentiment stamped from the Label Me Bold stamp set (heads up this one is retiring soon!! Get it now!).

I have then added this on a simple strip of Basic Black cardstock which I have edged with some Gold Glimmer punched with the Decorative Ribbon Border punch.
This punch makes the cutest scalloped edges and this beautiful punch is also retiring --- this is a crafty must have!!! Trust me - you will be as addicted to those scalloped borders as I am once you get started!

Lastly I have embellished with some flowers die cut from Lovely Lipstick Cardstock with the In The Tropics Dies and have accented these with the From My Heart Faceted Gems.

I have then spritzed it with the Clear Wink of Stella pen to make it sparkly.

I hope you enjoyed a little look at a fun birthday card with some fun water colouring and got some inspiration to go and colour.
