Birthday love


Hello Crafty people!
Happy weekend!
 I want to show my new card with lots of textures and techniques.
This time I went for a great sketch made by Wenche and entering my card into their challenge.

 Here is my take on the sketch: So I am sharing my card-" Birthday love"
Firstly. I made my own background on the Pink CS using Darice Embossing folder-"Basket Weaving" with Raspberry distress ink pad.

on a darker background
Watercolouring is very trendy now a days and I am inspired by with lots of people in crafting world!!! I choose a very sweet image from Darcie's stamp set-Simple joy. Isn't she so cute!!! I stamped the image on watercolour paper and do you know I used  Joy Crafts cut & emboss dies Garden Fence as a stencil. I sketched around it very lightly using a HB drawing pencil. I coloured the whole scene using Distress inks AND SOME Japaneese brush pens.
Have a closer look.......I tried my best to give some effects...HAHAHA:)

 I embellished my card for gorgeous look with some white Crochet flowers. I distressed them and highlighted them using loose glitter powder.

I applied  EMBOSSING Powder Resist TECHNIQUE for the sentiment and then distressed it using Tim Holtz Water brush.
on a darker background
 Now , have a look at this beautiful border. The butterfly border is from  Memory Box Kensington Border. I clear embossed this border( I repeated the process 4 times to give it a good coating)
 
 I added an arrow washi tape.
 And look at this gorgeous butterfly charm......
 Here is the inside view:

a closer view...... 
I finished off with my card using some rhinestones, Pearls, baby pink georgette ribbon, wide mesh ball chain ruffle yarn lace from Itsy Bitsy,Raspberry Pink coloured flower die cut lace border, button and pollens.
Other supplies used:
White Ivory CS, Pink CS, DCWV Recollection DP stack set, Dotted PP for butterfly border, Distress inks-Picked Raspberry, Tumbled glass, Vintage photo, Scattered straw, Tattered rose and some Japanese brush pens-Mustard and green
Versamark clear embossing pad, Wow embossing powders-Clear Gloss, Opaque bright white and sparkle pink, A floral sticky ribbon
Adirondack Alcohol inks-sunflower, red, green, Pink glitter powder from Itsy Bitsy, Static pad.
Clear sentiment stamps from kaisercraft-Hip Hip set and Darcies simple joy set.
Itsy Bitsy thin cuts fancy assorted par die cut- using inside for sentiment banner 
 Hope you liked it, I enjoyed a lot!!!!
