Birthday Poppies & Chickadees

Hi peeps! Vera here to bring you mid week inspiration from The Ton. I’ve been enjoying playing with watercolor, so needless to say for my card today, I want to create something using watercolor technique.

The good thing is there are plenty of beautiful sets from The Ton to choose from. I decided to use Thoughtful Poppies since I feel like I need to show this set some love.

I notice that when I do no line watercoloring, I tend to feel overwhelmed & think I completely mess thing up. It was until I watched someone’s video, I can’t remember who, but she said the first layer always look like a mess. Just keep going. Only after that I realized that I need to take it easy with myself.

Anyway, I start by stamping the image twice with Distress Ink in Antique Linen. Then I watercolor the image with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor set. Add the line detail as you add more layers. Let it dry.

Once it dry, I die cut the birthday sentiment directly on the watercolor panel using Bold General Greeting Word. Adhere the panel to the card base. Then I die cut the word again 3 more times from a white cardstock & layer it to create depth.

Then I stamp the word Happy from Peony Laurel set just above the birthday.

Since I super love the Chickadees from Nesting Peonies set, I just had to add a couple of them on the card. I think they completed the card perfectly. Finish by adding some liquid enamel drop.

I am very happy with the way this card turned out. And, I hope you love this inspiration as much as I enjoy making it. Thank you all for stopping by here and letting me share my creation. Have a fabulous day, peeps!
