Another Fall Birthday Card...and I Used a Technique!

Gina K's set Sun-Kissed Autumn has outline images like yesterday's gorgeous leaves but it also has a block flower image that is so very gorgeous.

I colored the stamp directly with Memento markers using a pouncing technique. First, both blossoms are completely colored with dandelion, and then tangelo and lady bug markers are pounced onto the image at random. After a few spritzes with water, the colors blend a bit but still have a mottled effect that is just fabulously interesting.

I added a trio of bling, a red sentiment, and two mats of white card stock complete this crisp, colorful, autumnal card.

This card went to live with a dear friend whose birthday was today. It's always so joyful to give a special creation to a special friend.

Happy Thursday!
