I used a Ken Oliver Crafts Mixed Media Art Board 6 x 6″ for my project along with Liquid Metals Metallic Rose, Metallic Mandarin, Color Burst Turquoise, Orange, Lemon Yellow, Burnt Orange, Merlot, Orange and  Tangerine. Stencil from Stencil Girl (S110 Tall Birds). I worked on a Best Ever Craft Mat to contain my mess.

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
