Botanical Birthday with Brutus

Hi Everyone!

Jenny here with a delicate and soft birthday card using a wonderful stamp 'Botanical Banners' by Brutus Monroe.  The card uses watercolor, heat embossing and dry embossing - here's how I created it.


I used some Altenew Spicy Yoghurt cardstock for the background panel, trimmed down to A2 size, which I dry embossed using a Tim Holtz/Sizzix Roses embossing folder. The Tim Holtz embossing folders give a gorgeous subtle effect and create a wonderful impression that is create to add texture without making a card busy, so you can still keep it clean and simple.  I recently got this one and can't wait to use it.  Bring back dry embossing :)



I added a border frame with the same cardstock by using two of the Hero Arts Infinity Rectangles and adhering the frame to the embossed panel with Ranger Multi Medium Matte.  I adhered the panel directly to a card base.  For some subtle color, I mixed some pink watercolor up and flicked it on to the panel with a paintbrush.

The rose image was stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with Ranger Pearl embossing powder (it has a really pretty subtle sheen).  I then watercolored the image with Daniel Smith watercolors.  When dry, I fussy cut it out and popped it up on the card panel with foam squares.



The sentiment is from the same set and was heat embossed with Rose Gold embossing powder. I trimmed it out and popped it up on foam squares, added a double layer on one side for lots of extra dimension.



As a finishing touch I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sweet Pea sequins with Ranger Multi Medium Matte.   It was nice to take a short break this week from holiday cards, but these will return with a vengeance soon I promise!!

Hope you like the card, as usual I love reading your comments and if you have any questions, let me know!

Jenny
