A bouquet for Bonnie

July 2019This is a special BIRTHDAY card for my dear, sweet friend, Bonnie.  She is, also, the important other half, behind the CAS community scene.

The Papersmooches vase die was dry embossed onto 140lb cold press watercolour paper.  I masked the top rim to be able to stamp MFT‘s silhouette flowers, with my Misti, of course.  I used Daniel Smith watercolour paints and then embellished with my white & glitz gel pens.  A piece of Japanese lace paper was die cut and adhered with matte medium onto the card.  A Technique Tuesday stamp “you are amazing” was stamped and silver heat embossed along with part of the sunflower stem to ground the bouquet.

Do join in on the “flower bouquet” challenge at the CAS Watercolour blog.

Happy Birthday sweet Bonnie!

Thanks for stopping by, HUGz, JoannaIMG_4266

  3. This card is even more breathtaking in person, Jo! It honestly looks like you painted without stamps. I love the glitz and the added texture of the Japanese paper (of which I have thanks to you and often take out and look and feel. Maybe one day I’ll be brave enough to us it.) You are amazing my dear friend!
