Birthday Leaves

This is my second post for today. To see my Clearly Besotted Stamps card, scroll down. :)
Today I am sharing this card on the Hero Arts blog. It features two gorgeous stamps: Foliage Bold Prints and Birthday Script.

To create my card, I first stamped the Foliage Bold Prints in Lime to Forever Green Ombre Ink on white card. Next, I used some green watercolour paint to splatter droplets onto the stamped panel to give out a more rustic look - I didn't want it to be too clean looking. Once the inks were dry, I stamped the Birthday Script sentiment in black ink on top, making sure to stamp it over the lightest part of the ombre background.

To finish, I stitched the white panel to some green cardstock, then embellished with green sequins and pearls.
Thanks for visiting (again?) today.
