Birthday card using Aqua Flow pens

Hi crafty friends! Today I am back with a flower card. Perfect for any occasion with those adorable big and bold poppies! The poppies are by Stampendous, I just love their big stamp designs. They really make a statement. Plus can you see how amazing their matching dies cut?! No border!!!

I made it a birthday card, because you can never have enough of those. But the card design would work for a thank you card, get well, pretty much everything.

To color my lovely poppies I used my new Nuvo Aqua flow pens. The watercolor flows great out of their brush and they are really easy to blend.

I also played with my stencil and glimmer paste for the background to create a shiny but subtle look. And can you see the vase? I just had to add acetate there to make it look like a real glass.

    This is beautiful! It’s lovely to see dies that cut matching stamps without leaving that awful white border! A beautiful card Vicky, thank you.

    Gorgeous card Vicki, I love how you coloured your poppies and using the acetate over the vase to look like water was brilliant, I’d of never thought of that but I’ m going to give it a try! The new aqua Pens look amazing, do you know if you can get them in Canada, I can’t find them!

    Beautiful card Vicky! This stamp set is gorgeous. I like the acetate on the vase. These new markers look fabulous, another thing to go on my wish list, lol. I so love watching you work, even if I don’t have the exact products you used, you always make me want to run down to my office and create. Thanks for sharing and always inspiring.

    Poppy video is so wonderful. I ordered the stamps & dies & was amazed they were in my mailbox in 4 days! Super service! I wish the other stamp companies would make dies that leave no white space. Who wants to spend the time coloring & have it look like a purchased sticker? Not most people I’m sure.
    Thank you sincerely for sharing your time & talents!
