Sending Birthday Wishes

Doing a little experimenting with some distress inks for that watercolor effect. I found an old Hero Arts stamp that had different sized circles on it. I then inked it using Tim Holtz distress ink and stamped it onto a clear block, misted with water and then pressed my paper on top of the block. I did this with three different colors and not satisfied with the yellow I gave it a final stamp directly on the card with the ink that was still remaining on the stamp.

Added a bit of washi tape on the edge of the base card, popped up my water color card and then finished it off with some sequins, enamel dots, a die cut sentiment from Simon Says stamp and a tag that I also stamped and die cut from more Simon Says products.


  1. Wow, gorgeous card, Leslie, love the way your background turned out!
