Geranium Birthday Card

Posted by: Gemin General, Projects

Geranium birthday

It’s the last day of Dare to Get Dirty Week at SplitcoastStampers, and I’m trying to do as much challenges as I can. For this card, I get to cross out 8 challenges from my list! Yay! The geranium image and the paper piercing are digis from the Paper Piercing Floral Set, while the hummingbird is also a digi from Window Reflections. I’m not too crazy about how the digis printed because my printer is running low on cyan… but oh, well! The sentiment is by Jean Paul Richter and printed using the American Classic font.

 I made the text follow the curve in Photoshop. One thing that’s not too obvious but adds a lot of visual texture is the spray of dark red acryclic paint on the light green cardstock. This was done by thinning the acrylic paint into the consistency of cream, then flicking a paintbrush dipped into the paint over a piece of hard netting. The papers I used are from Coredinations – red ruby, DCWV – green #3 and Bazzill Basics – vanilla. The stitching was done by hand using two strands of pale green embroidery floss .
