Time to make a guy birthday card and I decided to use my shimmer watercolors from Iuile at Etsy. I am posting this on Magenta today, and you can see that post here.
I wish that I could photograph this properly to show how gorgeous the glittery shine is with these watercolors.
I first stamped the Magenta Floral Snowflake image in gold Delicata ink. Because there is some texture on this dark blue cardstock, it didn't stamp completely solid, so I put some of the gold ink onto a block and with a wet brush I spread the ink out to cover the image better.
I then painted in parts of the image using the Christmas Set of Iuile watercolors. Since these watercolors have so much mica in them, they are opaque
I added some dots of gold Sakura Poster Color paint using a stylus
I stamped the Magenta Sally Penley calligraphy Happy Birthday and embossed it with gold embossing powder. I was afraid that if I stamped it with the Delicata on the textured paper it wouldn't show up well enough. I matted the panel with So Silk Fair Blue cardstock and mounted it onto a base card.
