Another card ticked off my "to make list", this time using a stamp by Honey Doo Crafts.
For the main floral image, I used Versafine Clair "Purple Delight" ink to stamp the "Delicious Dahlia" stamp by Honey Doo Crafts. Once stamped, I quickly coated the stamped area with Wow! clear embossing powder and then heat set.
I used two shades of Ranger Archival Inks: Pink Peony and Shadow Grey through the Lavinia Stamps "Dynamic Stencil" to create the background pattern, fading the colour out towards the edges.
I coloured the dahlia blooms using an "Amethyst" Derwent Inktense pencil applied with a pencil. I then added some splatters of the same colour, across the surface of the card.
Once dry, I used Versafine Clair "Purple Delight" ink to stamp the "Happy Birthday" sentiment and the small outline hearts using a stamp set by Lawn Fawn called "Simply Sentiments".
I then started to add the finishing touches. I used a yellow and orange Posca Pen for the central areas of the flowers and added dots of Range White Enamel Accents to areas around the stamped flowers.
