HAPPY WATERCOLOR #3

 
The card base is Stampin' Up! Crushed Curry card stock.  I edged the front of the card with one of the Cuttlebug border embossing folder from the Organic Flourish set of five and then scored lines were placed on each side of the embossing.
 
The white piece was trimmed down so it would fit nicely in the remaining space.  I took a sponge and added Crushed Curry ink in the area where I would stamp the flowers.  I shaded the background slightly by beginning at the top and swirling the ink down to the bottom.   As I added additional ink, I always started at the top and gradually shaded downward.
 
Next I stamped the floral design with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Crushed Curry butterflies were punched and added along with tiny pearls.  The "Happy Birthday" vertical stamp is from Darcie's.
 
Hope you'll be back tomorrow........but thank you so much for stopping by today!

This is exactly my kind of design...no coloring involved!! I will have to remember to use sponging in the background, I like the nice halo it gives.
