I began by working on the background. On a white card base, I inked over the Altenew Watercolour Stripes stencil with cracked pistachio and peacock feathers distress oxide inks. I then flicked the background with water for those lovely droplet details.
Next, I die cut the Pretty Pink Posh Happy Birthday script die twice from white card. I temporarily adhered the die cut words to a strip of card, as it’s easier to add embossing ink and heat powders on die cut words if you have something to hold.
I covered the words with WOW embossing ink, then sprinkled on WOW Calypso embossing glitter and heated with the WOW dual speed heat tool. Once the embossing was cooled, I removed them from the strip of card.
As the embossed words were a similar colour to my background, I decided to offset a white diecut word behind each one. I then adhered the words to the card.
To finish, I added some enamel dots in matching colours.
Have a lovely day,
