Yellow Hibiscuses Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Happy Friday! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Yellow Hibiscuses Card:o)

For my card I used stamps from two Jane's Doodles stamp sets: 'Hibiscus' and 'All Occasions'.

I really love how my Hibiscus Card from our last blog hop turned out and just had to CASE it (Copy And Share Everything). This time I used one more hibiscus flower stamp from the set and went with different color scheme.

How I made my card...

With some masking, I stamped gorgeous hibiscus flowers on a white watercolor paper. I made masks of all hibiscus flowers from the set when I received it and stored them to use them in my future projects.

I colored gaps among flowers with black marker. Then I watercolored hibiscus flowers in watercolor technique using Distress Inks.

After drying, I glued the panel on a black top folded card base and drew white highlights on flowers with a white pigment ink.

Lastly, I heat embossed in white on a black cardstock paper a sentiment 'Thank You', cut the stripe to a desirable size, added some foam on the sentiment stripe and glued it on the card. :o)

Card measurements: 95 mm x 127 m(3 3/4" x 5")
