Lily pad Birthday -another Eclipse technique- Paper Craft Crew Challenges #366

For this card created for the sketch challenge at Paper Craft Crew Challenges #366 I again used the Reverse Eclipse technique.  I first used it on a card yesterday.  Check my post       
This time I used the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set with its coordinating dies and DSP.

The floral images were white embossed on watercolour paper, covered with a light Highland Heather wash and then coloured along the petal edges with full strength Highland Heather ink and an Aqua painter. Some Daffodil Delight was added to the Lily centers.

Also white embossed was a Lilly Pad and two leaves.  These were coloured with Granny Apple Green with Mossy Meadow used as shading.

All images were die cut with the coordinating dies and set aside while the rest of the card was constructed.

A Blackberry Bliss card base was layered first with the Special Lily DSP (a floral pattern) and then with a more neutral DSP (no floral patterns) which has horizontal variations that remind me of water.

In this more neutral piece of DSP, an aperture was die cut using one of Sweetly Stitched Dies that looks like a window. This DSP is adhered to the Floral DSP which is layered on the card base. 

The  window shaped die  cut was used as a base upon which the art piece was built. Once completed the underside of this die cut is covered with foam adhesive and added to the aperture creating the Eclipse.  Prior to adding this die cut, some Blushing Bride  metallic  thread was wrapped behind it.

Some rhinestones from the Noble Peacock collection sparkle beautifully against the Blackberry Bliss background and finish the card nicely.

The sentiment from "Peaceful Moments", was stamped in Highland Heather ink on Whisper White card stock  and added to the left side of the Lily art piece.
