Another Birthday Card
I am really having fun using these new Quietfire Design hearts to make flowers!! Here I've used both sizes and layered them. Inks used for stamping the hearts are Adirondack raspberry and pink sherbet. The center of the flower is a gold button with the shank cut off. Cut a couple of Tim Holtz flourishes from a light green paper and embossed them with a Cuttlebug folder from the Oriental Weave set. For the background I used an Inkssential craft sheet.. rubbed on raspberry and pink sherbet ink... spritz it with a mix of gold Perfect Pearls and water.. pressed in the white cardstock... dried it... pressed, dried, pressed, dried, until I like it and then repeated using Adirondack citrus ink. The picture below better shows the shimmer from spritzing with the Perfect Pearls mixture instead of just water. The flourish is stamped in the corners with raspberry ink. Happy Birthday is stamped onto white cardstock with Archival ink jet black and cut out with a die from Spellbinders labels 4.... sponged with inks and some glitter dome sticky back gems added. That is a gold ribbon wrapped around the background under the sentiment.
