Birthday Flowers

 
Morning.  Sorry I have been missing for the last week.  I was on holidays but caught a nasty virus and lost my mojo along the way.  So finally, had the ambition to stamp and make a card when I saw this challenge at Splitcoast; colouring.  One of my favourite things to do with my stamps is to colour directly onto them instead of inking with an ink pad.
I began my card by colouring the flowers from Rubbernecker with Memento markers, sprayed with water to help blend the colours and then stamped twice on separate sheets of cardstock.  When dry, I cut one of the images with my square Spellbinders die and layered it with pop dots over the other one.  I inked the Papertrey Ink sentiment with Memento black and stamped under the flowers. 
 
 
Also adding my card to these challenges:
 
Seize the Birthday- ANYTHING GOES
 
 
 
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
 
Supplies:  stamps- PTI, Rubbernecker/ Memento markers/ Memento bl. ink/ pop dots/ Spellbinders die/ mini mister
