I stamped this Stampendous carnation (Cling Carnation Blooms) onto Strathmore bristol vellum, and colored with Polychromos colored pencils, using the flicking technique to create texture for my carnations. An Altenew die along the right edge adds some elegance. The script background panel is done with a The Crafter's Workshop stencil and TH distress black ink. Stencil is TCW541s Mini Believe Script. The birthday verse is from Stampendous set Cling Fresh Peony.
