Birthday Wishes.....

I bought this stamp ages ago and was inspired by a couple of challenges 
to actually use it!
This is my card.....

I have used the sketch and the photo for my inspiration
from The Fusion Challenge...
I love to join in at.....
The CAS Watercolour Challenge and used the colours of Green and Pink...
My choice of medium is Water colouring... and Zigs
The pretty flower stamp has been stamped and embossed in white.
I then played with the zigs to colour it in.
I wanted a delicate sentiment to complement the image, 
which took an ordinate amount of time to decide and to execute!
I finished off the card with delicate splats 
and layering onto grey card to represent the grey on the car in the photo.

I am glad, that at last I have used this pretty flower stamp 
and very much enjoyed the process of making this card.

Thank you so much for finding time to stop by my blog.....

Beautiful colouring - stunning card. Thanks for the comment on my poppy card - dropping ink is so much easier than painting LOL. I just used a TH alcohol ink called Poppyfields. Biggest flower was with the bottle, then I used a paint brush for the smaller ones.
