Birthday card with alcohol markers

Hello Crafters,

I really enjoyed colouring with my alcohol markers the other day, so I created another card. This time I used one of the new Tom Holtz flower stamps (flower garden).

I stamped it several times in grey on a stitched panel. Then I outlined it with shades of neutral grey, to give them some depth. I matted the panel with some black card stock and embossed the sentiment on another strip of black card stock, which I popped up with some foam tape.

Then I adhered it all to a grey card base.

At last I stamped the flower again in black ink and coloured it in shades of red, to create a pop of colour. I added the flower flat to the banner, so it's popped up from the main panel.

Have a great day
