You've Got this - Happy Birthday - Paper Players #294 and Freshly Made Sketches #235

First of all, Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there.  I have finally heard from all my children and feel like a Mother again.

The card I made tonight was made using 2 challenges:  a sketch challenge by Freshly Made Sketches and a colour challenge with The Paper Players.  I needed a birthday card, so this was a good opportunity to make one.

The Background:
I applied the four colours of the challenge as markers on E block, spritzed , and then applied the wet block to watercolour paper.  The heat tool was used to dry the paper.

The Image:
After the background was dry, the image of the flower was stamped at an angle on top of the watercolored background.  Black Memento ink was used.
The image was coloured with ink pads and a blender pen - the flower Pink Pirouette with the center So Saffron and the stem and leaves Pear Pizzazz.  For shading of the flower I used Wisteria Wonder.
Wink of Stella clear glitter was applied to the flower.
The Rest of the Card:
The card base is Pink Pirouette, layered first with Whisper White, then Pear Pizzazz DSP.  The watercolour image paper was matted with Wisteria Wonder and added to the card front using dimensiionals.
The sentiment is from "Cottage Greetings" - stamped in Whisper White with the panel notched at both ends.  It is added to the card using dimensionals.

To finish the card I added some In Color sequins.

Supplies Used:
stamps: You've Got This, Cottage Greetings
Inks: Black Memento, Wisteria Wonder, Pink Pirouette, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz (both ink pads and markers)
Papers: Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz DSP, Wisteria Wonder, Watercolor Paper
Accessories:Blender Pen, Spritzer, In Color Sequins, Wink of Stella clear glitter brush, dimensiionals.
