So it's a beautiful day...

Hi you know I have been out of action for some time but just getting back into the swing of things and what better than with one of my favouritest stamp sets...Beautiful Day from Altenew.

I stamped the flowers and white embossed them....I also white embossed the leaves too. I then masked the flowers and stamped and white embossed the happy birthday text background.

Using my zig clean colour brush pens I added lots of colour to the flowers and leaves, I then loaded a brush with lots of water a d brushed over the coloured flowers....this gave a softer look and also gave some colour to the text.

Once dry I added some coloured splits, I then left it to dry before I added the black ink splodges.

I then stamped the sentiment and white embossed and I did cut the "you" 3 times and glued them together.

I added these to the card and also added some sequin, pearls and gems to finish...hope you likey!

Such a pretty card with one of my fave stamp sets! The waterbrushing across the text gives a lovely soft look to the whole thing. Lovely Fiona and thank you for sharing with us at Stamping Sensations!

Getting back to crafting must feel good. This is a lovely Altenew set and you've watercoloured it beautifully. It may be a little too buy for our clean and simple challenge as we love seeing uncluttered white space. It's a beautiful card. Thank you for joining us at Less is More. x

Your card is STUNNING, Fiona. Unfortunately, the CAS Watercolour challenge this month is Bird and I don't see a bird on your card.

Sorry to hear that you've not been crafting and I do hope you'll be in the swing again soon. This is a pretty and feminine card. A little more clear space would have been wonderful but the recipient will adore this card.
Thanks so much for sharing this with us,
