Inskpirations Sketch Challenge #14 - Birthday Lily

Hi all,
I am really leaving it to the last minute (well, hours anyway) for Keesh's Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #14:

As soon as I saw this sketch, I had a great idea - however the stamp set I had in mind is still coming in the post :) So I have put together this card instead:

Supplies (all Stampin' Up!)
Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Bitty Birthday
Cardstock: Regal Rose, Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White, watercolour paper
Ink: VersaMark, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White craft ink, Regal Rose, Old Olive
Accessories: Aquapainter, white embossing powder, Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla satin ribbon, word window punch, eyelet border punch, dimensionals.

I used the 'watercolour rose' technique for the popped-up lily (I think that's what the flower is - all I know is that I am allergic to them, lol). You can find a tutorial for that technique here. I used watercolour paper instead, and used my aquapainter to swish it around a little.

I will definitely be trying out my other idea, once my new stamps arrive, so pop back to my blog another time and check it out!

Yippee, it's Friday tomorrow :)


  1. this is a stunning card - the flower is just gorgeous, I love it

  2. The lily is gorgeous, I love how you have coloured it, I will have to check that tutorial out. I also love how you have stamped the lily on the base card stock, very effective.

  3. Oh this is really pretty Genelle! I love your coloured flower....thanks so much for playing! Love keesh x

  4. So pretty - the watercoloured flower is lovely - a fun technique.

  5. That looks absolutely fantastic. Haven't put my cards together yet - thanks for the inspiration!
