If you are just finding us for this blog hop, Welcome! Make sure you check out the other projects from the first two days! Leave a comment for a chance to win a giveaway! If you are returning, glad you are back today for me to share this fun birthday tag. I used an XL shipping tag for this project.
I used the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils (# 105, 111, 133, 136, 141, 143, and 183) inside the flower and outside the flower to create a dramatic contrast.
You can see the close up of the sketched in areas before I added water.
I used my waterbrush to add water and let it drip down.
Once dry, I mixed Textural Accents Whipped Spackle with the Glass Glitter in the Encrusted Jewel Kit pack. Using the palette knife, I spread it through a hexagon stencil. It gave the Whipped Spackle a great sparkle and looks like confetti! I also embedded some of the Purple Fragments from that kit too.
Here you can see the Fragments in the Whipped Spackle.
I also used the Aquarelles on a canvas butterfly from Prima Marketing. I love the way the resist shows up with the gorgeous color from the Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils.
I used the Embossing Tinsel again on vellum with the Birthday stamp set. I layered the sentiment over the canvas butterfly.
Here you can see the sparkle really well!
