Since there are two birthdays in the family in October, I decided to make a birthday card for the October challenge of the Country View Challenges. The theme is Plantastic and the lovely Rachel will be your hostess.
I covered with the mixture of DecoArt Light Buttermilk and Spa Blue a 300gsm mixed media paper.
For the background pattern, I used Tim Holtz latest stamp set, the Craze and Planks and the Ranger Archival Watering Can ink pad.
Inked the edges with the same ink, then I toned back with diluted Light Buttermilk paint.
When it was dry, I spattered the surface with Light Buttermilk paint.
For the flowers, I used the two Sizzix Thinlits sets, the Funky Floral #1 set and the Garden Greens.
I chose two cardstocks (a light yellow and a light rose) that I fished out from the mess on my desk and inked the edges with Tattered Rose ink.
Then I adhered the leaves and flowers to the card.
What I used:
Sizzix Thinlits die, Funky Florals #1 by Tim Holtz (662700)
Sizzix Thinlits die, Garden Greens by Tim Holtz
Sizzix Thinlits die, Handwritten Celebrate by Tim Holtz (660215)
