Gerbera Birthday Card – Essentials by Ellen February 2016 Mix It Up Challenge

e by e feb 2016 mix it up birthday

Here is my entry for the Essentials by Ellen February 2016 Mix It Up Challenge . This month, the challenge is to mix Essentials by Ellen products with Penny Black products. I just got this gerbera daisy stamp (Penny Black) recently – I thought I had at least one other Penny Black stamp in my collection, but nothing else came out of my stamp storage area when I commanded, “Accio, Penny Black stamps!”

I stamped the flowers/butterfly onto watercolor paper with VersaFine Smokey Gray, and let it dry. (no embossing on the main image – odd for me!) I then used my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush markers and a water brush to paint the image. The card base was splattered with the Light Violet marker and a Wink of Stella (clear) pen.

The sentiment is from the Essentials by Ellen Wish Big set, and is embossed in Ranger Silver Pearl over white ink.
