I finally had the chance to play with my new stamp set , Birthday Blooms available for purchase in the Occasion Catalogue .
I'll admit I've not done very much water colouring but I am happy with how my cards turned out and I am loving this set that I wasn't intending to purchase . However , the cards being created with this set soon changed my mind !
The first card was water coloured using Watermelon Wonder and then a wink of Stella was added to the whole art piece before being snipped out with paper snips . I have used Birthday Bouquet DSP and also a strip of Shine On Specialty DSP for this card. You will also notice the DSP has a sheet of Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum covering it to give a more subtle look . This vellum is a SAB item you can earn for free when you purchase $90 product before postage .
While I adore pinks I wanted to try this flower in some different colours so I chose to use some of my Pretty Petals DSP stack from the AC for the next two cards .
Here we have a flower coloured using Pacific Point ink. I have only used Wink Of Stella in the centres of these two cards .
Last of all I coloured this one in Calypso Coral and used different coordinating DSP to the first card but the paper is all from the one paper stack !
