Addicted to Stamps and More: Birthdays

It's time to make some birthday cards at Addicted to Stamps and More! I hadn't had a chance to use a background stamp gifted to me by my friend Glenda, so out it came: 

I wanted an undersea look, so after embossing the jellyfish in white on watercolour paper, I added blue and purple watercolour powders, trying to add the purple where it would highlight a few of the jellyfish. The blue powder I used has a shimmer that didn't want to appear in my pics. Once the panel was dry, I die cut it and wrapped my torn-vellum sentiment around the edges to avoid any pesky adhesive showing through. I mounted the panel on a purple mat and added everything to the card base. 

Beautiful birthday cards made by my ATSM teammates can be found on the blog - take a look and then I hope you'll join us! 

Supplies: Neenah white & Memory Box purple cardstock, Canson watercolour paper, vellum, Hero Arts Jellyfish Party & Poppystamps Whittle Sealife Sentiments stamps, Versamark & Versafine onyx black inks, Wow clear gloss & opaque white embossing powder, Cosmo Cricket pool pixie paint, Magenta Nuance violet watercolour powder, MFT wonky stitched rectangle die

I love the watery look on this pretty card, Lindsey. Great job on getting the purple in the right places too! Such a good choice to use the vellum so as not to hide too much of that gorgeous background.
Take care,

Your jellyfish card is simply sensational! Beautiful use of the powders and I'm sure that blue shimmer is stunning in real life! Vellum for the sentiment is perfect!
