For My Sister
My celebrated her birthday recently and I haven’t shared her card with you. I made this card whilst I was playing, I mean working, with the Special Reason stamp set.
I cut the large flower from the left hand side of Whisper White card using the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies. I stamped the greeting from the Butterfly Basics stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of the Whisper White card. I stamped the large flower onto Whisper White card using So Saffron ink and then used the Daffodil Delight Watercolour Pencil and Blender Pen to add more colour following Alisa Tilsner’s technique. I attached the coloured image behind the image cut in the Whisper White card before attaching the whole panel to scored and folded Rich Razzleberry card. I stamped the large flower onto scrap Whisper White paper using Blushing Bride ink and added more colour using the Rich Razzleberry Watercolour Pencil and a Blender Pen. The image was cut out using the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies and attached to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped the small flower onto scrap Whisper White card using Pink Pirouette ink and added more colour using the Melon Mambo Watercolour Pencil and a Blender Pen. This flower is also attached to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped a large leaf and a small leaf onto scrap Whisper White card using Pear Pizzazz ink and added more colour using the Old Olive Watercolour Pencil and a Blender Pen. The leaves were cut using the matching Stylish Stems Framelits Dies and attached to the card front along with one large and one small detailed leaf cut from Pear Pizzazz card.
To decorate the inside of the card I stamped the small flower onto a Post-It-Note and cut it out. I attached the Post-It Note image to the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card. I stamped the small leaf over the edge of the Post-It Note using Pear Pizzazz ink. I stamped twice on each side without re-inking. I removed the Post-It Note and attached a small flower stamped in Pink Pirouette and coloured using the Melon Mambo Watercolour Pencil and a Blender Pen.
I am so loving this watercolour technique that Alisa Tilsner shared on her face book page. Check it out by clicking on the video link on the left hand side of her page and selecting Episode 11.
I hope my sister liked the card, I was little late getting it away to her.
