My card uses MC664 Happy Clear Set, H16172 Morning Rose, DIE369-J Greetings and Color Burst from Ken Oliver Crafts.4 Peony Jeanne_Streiff

I used a Stitched Watercolor Media card (Ken Oliver Crafts) for my card. This comes premade with a watercolor panel stitched onto the kraft card back. Pretty darn awesome! I stamped H16172 Morning Rose in a light yellow ink (this won’t show, I’m just using it as a guide) with my MISTI from My Sweet Petunia. The MISTI worked great on the card with both cling rubber and clear stamps even with the extra card layers. 1 Peony Jeanne_Streiff

I painted my flower with Color Burst(Lemon Yellow, Fuchsia, Sepia, Lime, Terre Verte) and then added the birthday phrase from MC664 Happy Clear Set.2 Peony Jeanne_Streiff

The background was painted with Liquid Metals (Metallic Jade, Metallic Saffron) and Color Burst Turquoise. Peony Jeanne_Streiff

I added Stick it to black cardstock and then die cut with DIE369-J Greetings.3 Peony Jeanne_Streiff

Look at the pretty shimmer from the Liquid Metals!5 Peony Jeanne_Streiff

Foxy Color Burst Card

I have a fun project to share today using the Sizzix Bigz Die – Fox #2 and Ken Oliver Color Burst panels to paper piece a shaped card.

Birthday Wishes Jeanne_Streiff

To make my background I stamped G16165 Lg. Boxwood Stem in green ink (with my Mini MISTI) over a panel of sparkle paper that I colored with Color Burst (Terra Verde and Ultramarine Blue).

1 Birthday Wishes Jeanne_StreiffI misted the image with water to give it a little more of a surreal look.

2 Birthday Wishes Jeanne_Streiff

I used a piece of white cardstock for my sentiment panel. I used the same image (G16165 Lg. Boxwood Stem) and stamped off once before stamping on the panel to lighten the color. I stamped the sentiment (MC664 Happy Clear Set)  and then added the Wishes die cut. I lined up my sentiment panel with my background panel so they would be all matchy matchy.

4  Birthday Wishes Jeanne_Streiff

I used Perfect Layers Mini set and Perfect Cutting Mat along with my Ken Oliver Crafts Tool it All to create my layers on my card.

3 Birthday Wishes Jeanne_Streiff
