and this set for the sentiment:
I printed on my standby: Heavenly white #80 and used #120 for the base
I swatched out my colors for the blossoms using several brands - I liked the Spectrum the best, but they all worked fine together- Honestly I just don't see that much difference between brands:
with this picture, you can see what happens when you work with blending pen and reds - yuk.
To get around this, I used a base layer of a light red/peachy color, worked in lots of red shades and then went back in with the light color, this did give me some of the highlights I was looking for - but not 100% satisfactory results
Background papers next, then a little black glitter
The finished card and a few close ups
I was able to get some variations in the petal colors, but I think I need more practice
am pleased with the card and I ho[pe the birthday girl will like it!
Thanks for stopping by!
