Happy Birthday

Hello all, Kia here with you today for Day 19 of the Random Act of Cardness challenge. Today’s prompt is “Pink”.

For my card I am using Gina K Designs Elegant Asters along with Sizzix’ Embossing Folder Quilted.

I ran the Quilted embossing folder through my Gemini Jr. using Neenah cardstock. For the smooshing I put down the colours on my work surface, starting with Spun Sugar, then Kitsch Flamingo and ending with Picked Raspberry.

I continued smooshing until I was happy with the look. For the final addition of the Picked Raspberry I spritzed with Perfect Pearls and water instead of just the water. This added a lovely shine to the background.

I then dried the piece using my heat gun and attached it to my Gina K Design card base using foam tape.

Moving on I stamped the butterfly first with VersaFine Clair ink in Glamorous, then with Nocturne. I then stamped the flower using Versamark embossing ink and heat embossed with Pink embossing powder.

Using the 66 Dot card I watercoloured the flower and butterfly using the Quinacridone Pink and Quinacridone Fuschia. To the flower centre I added Hansa Yellow medium.

I then die cut the pieces and styled them using my stylist. I stamped the sentiment using the VersaFine Clair ink in Glamorous, then arranged and attached the flower and butterfly with foam squares.

To finish I added a scattering a crystals and sequins.
