Watercolor Poppies

Boy do I have a bunch of birthdays right here at the end of the month so I am busy making Birthday cards. This one I wanted to share because I had lots of fun making it. I started with a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor paper and some versa mark ink. I stamped my image and then embossed it with some vintage embossing powder, next I masked off the image with some rubber cement allowed it to dry and then wet the entire paper and used Melon Mambo re inker to make my background.  I also used my go to set from Stampin Up Gorgeous Grunge and then spritzed some gold color shine on it as well.
The "happy" die I used some gold foil from Stampin Up to cut it out and then stamped my greeting underneath.

I am entering this one in the Fusion challenge for Shiny Pink and I sorta followed the sketch.

Stamp Set: Precious Poppies (Sweet 'n Sassy), Gorgeous Grunge (Stampin Up)

Glitter And The Expo

Happy Sunday! 

 Today's  card uses a couple Memory box dies and some of the newest Authentique paper. When I first saw this paper I thought wedding but then I added some glitter and a couple Memory box dies and it became Christmas. 
The glitter I used is called Celestial and it is gold and a touch of ivory mixed in, and it's gorgeous. The company that makes it is Sparkle N Sprinkle, they were at the Expo this past weekend and have tons of fun glitter, flocking and embossing powder.  
You can find my supplies at A Scrap N Place and the glitter? well Terri is inquiring about selling Sparkle N Sprinkle in her store :)
I had fun at the expo and came home with a sizable craft haul!

Supply List:
Design paper: Authentique
Dies: Memory Box
