Crazy Card Party #32 - Watercolour (Birthday Wishes)

This weeks Challenge on Crazy Card Party is create a Watercolour Card - now there are so many ways to go about doing this so I decided to try out my Distress Inks and created the background in the larger Quote!

  1. Use your Distress Inks to create a Watercolour effect on the Tim Holtz watercolour paper.
  2. Let it dry completely.
  3. Then Using White Embossing Powder emboss the Sentiment Birthday wishes.
  4. Die cut the Large Quote and use the negative piece for the front of the card.  Pop dot this over the watercoloured piece of paper.
  5. Stamp the Happy Birthday Quote in Red Ink and diecut using the matching die.
  6. Colour in the leaves with a green copic marker.
  7. Diecut the 2 flowers from blue felt and add to the the happy birthday quote  Add some bling to the centre of the flowers.
  8. Pop Dot the Happy Birthday Quote.
