Plant 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 Plant Birthday Card:o)

To make this card I used stamps from a gorgeous Jane's Doodles 'Plants' stamp set.

How I made this card...

stamped a plant four times on a watercolor paper and stamped the plant and a sentiment on a white cardstock paper panel. I made a plan how will I layer (paper piece) the image and marked pieces with numbers.

I drew lines on a plant pot. Then I colored pieces I needed in watercolor technique using Koh-i-noor aquarell colored pencils. After drying, I colored pieces to be hidden in black with a marker.

fussy cut pieces I needed, traced edges with black marker and softened pieces on a soft working mat using stylus ball (this curls images a bit).

Here is a photo of all pieces I used for paper piecing the plant.

With all pieces ready, I assembled the card. I glued the panel directly on a white top folded card base and glued plant pieces together with a liquid glue. I glued leaves only on the top and left bottom parts unglued.

As a finishing touch, I drew white highlights with a white pigment ink, curled leaves a bit and my card was finished. :o)
