Little Meow Birthday Card, Watercolour Pencils and Wink of Stella

Morning all.  Hope everyone is okay this morning.  We've made it to halfway through the week, not long to go to the weekend.  I've been having a go with some different techniques just lately so I'm sharing a card that I have made using Faber Castell Gelatos and Zig Wink of Stella.


The image is from the Little Meow Someone Special stamp set by Docrafts. This has been stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured with watercolour pencils but instead of water I blended the colour using Clear Wink of Stella.


The background is watercolour paper embossed using the Crafters Companion Barkley Embossing Folder - Flowers For You (which was a bargain, I picked this up from one of the hobbycraft shows from the Everycrafts a £1, 12 items for £10 stall).

I then used 3 colours of Faber Castell Gelatos (Watermelon, Snow Cone, Margarita Mix) on the embossed paper and softened and blended the colours using a babywipe.

The cat, flower, pennant and greeting banner have all been cut using Die-namics Blueprints Set #12 and the scallop circle is one of the spellbinders dies.



It doesn't show that well on the photo but the cat and flags have a gorgeous glistening and sparkly effect.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Cuttlebug Mania - use a stamp
Party Time Tuesdays - Anything Goes

See you soon.....
