Birthday Vase

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Are you ready for some flowers? We have lots of trees blooming...cherry, Bradford pears, dogwood, lovely! So I thought I add lots of pretty flowers to my birthday card today.

I wanted to use this new little dandelion image and I thought it would look good in a vase. After stamping & masking, I sponged on 3 colors of ink and spritzed w/ a little water. I added a few white dots w/ a gel pen just to brighten them up a bit then I cut them out. 

After I die cut the flower heart, I sponged the same colors on the flowers, spritzed them then put it back in the die & embossed it again while damp. This is really thick card stock and it embosses so much better when damp. After I punched the vase, I also misted it and embossed it w/ the same die. The edge of the lighter pink c/s was punched, sponged a little & white dots added to the centers. When the card was all put together, I added the black Candi dot on the flag & a little Wink of Stella on the dandelions.
Since I didn’t use any designer paper, I repeated the dandelions & sponging on the inside & added this new greeting.
