I used Stamping + Distress Ink Refills Liquid Colours + Die Cuts
Such an easy card to make. I let the beautiful Simon Says Stamp Die Cut "Birch Column" be the star of this CAS Birthday Card. I used a wet on wet watercolour technique on a piece of Strathmore Mixed Media paper. Adding water with a paint brush onto my paper then drops of Tim Holtz Distress Ink refills: Broken China and Peeled Paint, which I helped move around with another wet paint brush.
My next step was to die cut the beautiful "Birch Column" on a piece of 4" x 5 1/2" SU Shimmery White CS. Then stamped and fussy cut my new Penny Black "Heartfelt Thanks" sentiment using Archival Jet Black Ink. Adding a SU Basic Black CS frame and rhinestone.
I got into my stash of Memory Box die cut "Resting Birds" and chose 3 red birds for embellishment.
I attached the watercoloured background behind the "Birch Column" using SU Fine Tip Glue Pen and added the birds with the same glue. Attached the card front to the black cardstock to make the images pop. Adding foam tape to the card front and then to the card base gave my card more dimension. The sentiment tag is also popped up.
I added Wink of Stella to the birds and "Fabulous" to tie into the pretty Shimmery CS. I wish you could see in the photo, but we all know how they do not show up.....
