Happy birthday - Stampavie and More #288

Wednesday May 31, 2017
Welcome to a new challenge at Stampavie and More #288
It's my time to chose the theme so I chose PLAID..  Our challenges run for two weeks so I hope you play along. I love plaid.. I have made quilts with plaids because I love the variety and the look. Same goes with cards.. papers. LOVE them.
This is my card.. I made the PLAID background. I used my Kuretake Gansai paints on water color paper. I used a wide and narrow paint brush and various colors. When it was done it felt like it was missing something so I took my black Sharpie pen and just drew various black lines.(using a ruler as a straight line guide)  Then I liked it.. I wish you could see this in person. I have to admit it's stunning.  I then thought what color flower do I want to do.. so I found a Paper Trey Ink flower stamp and die and grabbed some Stampin up inks and stamped and die cut the flowers. I used Stampin up leave die. The sentiment is from PTI. I finished off with Nuvo drops in teal.. I mounted it on a piece of yellow card stock.. The black is just backing for photo shot.. It's not a part of the card.  Check out the Design Teams PLAID creations.
