Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Happy Birthday

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a birthday project. I had a gel print laying on my desk that inspired the colors on this card:

The Flower Gift Boxes image was coloring using Shinhan Premium Watercolors, to match the background. When the panel was dry I used a craft knife to cut around parts of the bow and gave it some dimension with a ball stylus and some foam tape (tutorial on that coming soon!). Some other details of the image were raised with a stylus as well.

The sentiment can be found HERE - I love these big words!

Here's an angled shot so you can see the dimension and a little shine I added with a Glaze pen.
