Soft Birthday Wishes

Hello! Today I have a card using Spring Florals, along with a few silhouette images from  Warm With Love and Hope Grows.

I started by stamping the images, from Spring Florals, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. 

I used Copic markers to color, starting with E37 in the centers. 

I used Y17 to fill in the highlighted area in the centers and at the base of the petals. 

Filled in with Y21. 

On the foliage, I started with YG97. 

Then filled in with YG05. 

Next, I used a Versa Mark pen to fill in the image so embossing powder would stick. Then I heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I sponged around the image with Memento New Sprout ink. 

Then I sponged with Memento Bamboo Leaves and stamped the grass, from Warm With Love, also with Bamboo Leaves. I stamped off on scratch paper before stamping on the cardstock, so it would look lighter. I stamped several times at different angles. 

I used the branch, from Hope Grows, and stamped the same way, using Memento Bamboo Leaves and stamping off on scratch paper. 

I layered with Pure Luxury Fresh Asparagus and used a Sweet Corn card base. The sentiment is also from Spring Florals.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great day!
