Birthday Botanical

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.

BEET THE HEAT!

The sentiment was designed to fit Plant Lady’s tee, but it also fits inside the watering can!  So cute!! My “dirt” was stamped with a dark brown pigment ink, but competed too much with the little die cut pieces, so I diffused it with a piece of card stock vellum and layered the beets and watering can over top! It’s hard to tell in the photo, but the beets have been glitter-fied with Stickles so they sparkle. :)

You are enough.

 

Enough-je

feat. Rustic Botanicals, Plant Ladies Say + Brilliance Graphite Black, Avery Elle Lemon Grass Pigment Ink; NUVO Crystal Drops in White

I used just one leaf from the Rustic Botanicals set to “build” my own mondo plant (cactus? succulent? greenery???).  :)  I thought it made a cool back-drop for the “You are enough” sentiment.  Spattered a little black paint over the top, and slapped on some baker’s twine and accented with NUVO drops.

Love it.  I do.
