Geometrical Birthday Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Geometrical Birthday Card.

To make this card, I used three beautiful Jane's Doodles stamp sets'Plants', 'Cactus' and 'Geometric Patterns' (stamp set is discontinued from Jane's store).

First I made a background panel/patterned panel. I used a triangle stripe pattern from the 'Geometric Patterns' stamp set, inked the stripe with Distress Ink Iced Spruce and stamped it on a watercolor paper panel couple times to create a pattern. I also used a tiny triangle stamp from the 'Cactus' stamp set to create the pattern. I stamped tiny triangles overlapping larger triangles. I followed the same pattern and got beautiful geometrical background/paper/panel. I trimmed the panel, glued it on a grey cardstock paper panel and glued everything on a top folded white card base.

Next up was an image. I stamped a plant from the 'Plants' stamp set on a thick watercolor paper, colored the plant in watercolor technique using Distress Ink Iced Spruce and Green aquarel colored pencils. After drying, I added extra shades on leaves with Green colored pencils and drew white highlights. I fussy cut the plant, leaving thin white border around her.

I heat embossed in white a sentiment from the 'Plants' set on the grey cardstock paper stripe, glued foam squares on the back of it and placed it on the card.

I glued foam squares on the back of the plant and placed her on the card. I like dimension difference, so I used 1 mm thicker foam squares for the plant than for the sentiment.

As a finishing touch, I embellished the card with light and dark grey enamel dots.
