Toni’s Birthday

A birthday card for my sweet cousin, Toni.

I’ve heat embossed the flowers from Altenew’s Persian Motifs in gold and then just loosely watercolored with some Distress Inks.  When it was dry I added some splashes of Peerless Transparent Gold watercolor.  This is a one layer card using Arches 140# cold pressed paper.

A simple sentiment from Altenew’s Superscript 2 and a smattering of fun iridescent white beads and sequins from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.  That little heart is actually iridescent but shows up pink on my photo…one of those little things that make you go hmmm????

  3. Oh I am so in love with Altenew sets and this one is showcased brilliantly here! Love the colours, so loose and pretty but not hiding those blooms in any way. Thanks for linking up at ATCAS and looks like another set to add on the wish list! Sarah x
