Hello! I was challenging myself to use this Tropical Blooms stamps and dies from A Muse Studio to create this fun Patriotic themed card. I started by embossing and masking the images with white embossing powder.

I then watercolored it using Tombow markers. I then fussy cut the hibiscus. I had everything all shaded then decided it needed some glitter. That's when some of my shading started to come together and form one color. OOPS! Note to self; be careful with the Wink of Stella brush. I die cut the sentiment and also added Wink of Stella because after all it is a celebration. I used a light blue Copic marker to outline the images. I then popped some sequins and mini dotted rhinestones.
