Make a Wish

A birthday card with a lot of Wishes. The stamp I used for my background is by Frantic Stamper and is perfect for this kind of repeat. I wanted a background for my flowers that was soft like the flowers so I used Memento's London Fog Ink to stamp the background. I first stamped the sentiment in another pattern, but that went in the garbage. I kept trying the stamp in different ways on scrap paper until I came up with this pattern. I inked my stamp several times before stamping, as I only had one shot at good coverage. I stamped my flowers using the same ink and watercoloured, before cutting. I added some silver micro ink to the flower centres. I stamped the banner again with the London Fog and attached, then styled my flowers and attached on foam dots. And of course, sequins and crystals to finish. Tomorrow I will show you a bolder card using the same method for my background, but a different colour and bold dynamic flowers. See you then.
