Calla Lily Birthday


This image (Paint-a-Flower Calla Lily, Altenew) was first stamped in a very light dye ink, then colored with water color pencils. When dry, it was re-stamped with Versamark and gold heat embossed.  I used a border punch on some gold matt card stock for the side strip element of the sketch, then mounted it with foam on a panel that was embossed with a stitched die plate. I used a cream card stock because the water color paper was not bright white. I embossed the sentiment with gold and adhered it. 

Inspired by sketch #529 at Try Stampin' on Tuesday - though I did not use the option of kitchen items.
