…friendship is the breathing rose…

Sharing a CAS card using a lovely stamp from the You are Here set from Concord & 9th.

I used the current sketch at CAS Colours & Sketches for the layout of my card.  For my non-geometric shape, I used the floral heart stamp, which I heat embossed and fussy cut before popping up on some foam tape.  For the rectangular element in the background I stencilled some diamonds so I could play along at Addicted to CAS.  I used a brush to do my stencilling and deliberately went heavier in some parts so there wasn’t a flat colour.

To colour my flowers, I used a water brush and some Distress Inks, as the current challenge theme at Back to Basics and Beyond is watercolours.  To finish off my card I coloured up a chippie in the same Shaded Lilac as I used for my stencilling, even though they don’t at all look the same colour in the photo.  For the top layer of the ‘birthday’ I used the same embossing powder as I did the flower in and added a layer of glittery clear embossing powder on the ‘wishes’ for a bit of added shine.
