Birthday Wishes

I treated myself to a few stamps and dies from Wplus9 - Basic Banners and Watercolored Anemones, with the idea of making cards with floral wreaths and sentiment banners.

I used an old stamp set (I forget where from) to stamp the camper van with Memento Tuxedo Black ink so that I could colour it with my alcohol markers.

 I then picked out some Papertrey ink dye inks to match my image: Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky, Ocean Tides, Limeade Ice, Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores and Smokey Shadow.

 I die cut a few sets of flowers and leaves and one banner and stamped them with the different coloured inks. I popped a few flowers and the centre of the banner up on foam pads to add dimension.

To fill in the gaps in the wreath I used a few flowers from Papertrey ink's Mini Blooms and Bigger Blooms stamp and die sets.
