Dahlia Burst ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

Today's card was inspired by Journey Sketches - sketch #4 on Facebook.  

You can check out the challenge HERE. They post a new sketch every Sunday if you'd like to play along.
I heat embossed my image with white embossing powder on watercolor paper and used Liquid Colors from Fun Stampers Journey to color it in.

Below are the colors that I used.  Usually I don't say anything about them, but I did use Candy Apple Liquid Color even though it doesn't look like it.  I painted each flower completely with Banana Cream (a light yellow), then while it was still wet I added a very watered down Candy Apple.  That's why it appears pink.  I also used the Beach Ball ink pad, but I did triple stamping with it.  That means I inked the stamp, stamped it twice on scrap paper, then stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment.  The Pool Play was too light in my opinion to see well enough.  I also want to mention that I did a bit of masking so the leaves and two smaller flowers appeared in the background.  As always all of the supplies I used are at the end of my blog post.

  1. Love your card. So pretty! Can you tell us how you got the speckled look on the petals?

    1. Thank you, Lael! :) The speckled look on the petals and leaves is white embossing powder. Do you ever get extra embossing powder that sticks where it's not supposed to? That's what happened this time and I decided to run with it instead of trying to get it all off. I sprinkled more on, flicked some of it off, used my heat gun then watercolored my flowers. :)

    2. What a great tip! I really like the look. I'm going to try it! Thank you!

    3. Thanks...glad you like it and want to give it a try! :)
