The cutting edge - happy birthday

Hi there!

I am here to share one of two cards I made yesterday, inspired by the card from Karolyn at The cutting edge challenge.




I followed the same basic layout, used watercolor paint with black accents like Karolyn. After painting  I used a background stamp form Hero arts. The card was completed with the top panel, which was cut with my Silhouette (applied the serrated knife no1) to create the scalloped edge.






Thanks so much for visiting me today!

Joe, vrou, dit is nou net absoluut ongelooflik!!!! - daai stamping so op die waterverf lyk verskriklik mooi - voor ek gelees het wat jy gedoen het, het ek gewonder wat op aarde jy gedoen het om daai effek te kry!!! Dit is pragtig, hoor!!! En die scallop rand en die perels is so treffend!! Ek is mal oor die fyn font van die sentiment en die scorelines is perfek!! Pragstuk!!!

Groete

I love how you've kept to a similar design yet your technique looks so different. The background stamp looks amazing against the watercolour!

So elegant, Hannelie ... what a fabulous panel against all the yummy scallopped white ... the bold black against the soft watercolouring is just lovely! Anita :)
