Watercolor Birthday Card

My grandmother's birthday is coming up this week, so I wanted to make a card for her. I decided to use some new stamps and some extra bits of paper I had watercolored to create a watercolor birthday card.

I watercolored a lot of paper with Studio Calico's watercolor paints for this project I created for We R Memory Keepers. I kept all of my unused pieces of watercolored paper to use later on some cards. I grabbed one of those pieces for my background here. I used Penny Black's Dandee and Heartfelt stamps to stamp the image in Versamark ink and then heat emboss with white Zing Embossing Powder.

I used a polka dot embossing folder with my Evolution Advanced to create the polka dots on the white card stock in the background. Finally, I added a little shimmer to the polka dots and the center of the dandelion with a clear Wink of Stella marker.

I think the combination of water coloring and embossed stamping makes for a pretty birthday card. 
Thanks for stopping by!
