Birthday botanicals-je

feat. Rustic Botanicals , Rustic Botanicals Dies (sentiment borrowed from Lovely)

This week I’m posting a different design every day, featuring stamps and dies from the August 2017 Essentials by Ellen Release

I’m still lovin’ the black and white with a pop of color trend.  Brilliance Graphite Black is the black ink I reach for most of the time–it’s so rich and deep.  The flower and leaves were inked up with Zig Art Graphic Twin Markers (water-based), spritzed with water and then stamped onto watercolor paper.  After they were dry, I just die cut them out and popped them onto the card front.

Over the last few years, I’ve gravitated to using Neenah Solar White #110 for my cards–that delicious heavy weight is a staple among my supplies.
