Here's my card:
How surprised are you about the colours? Mmm, thought not! So I started by brushing those colours in diagonals across some watercolour card. Then I spritzed the stamp with water and placed it fairly randomly blotting up the excess ink as I went along.
The addition of a die cut happy on a black banner and the a stamped birthday and I was done.
Stamps: HLS, Bold Birthday Sentiments; Stamplorations, Seashell Cosmo
Inks: Ranger distress, wilted violet, mermaid lagoon, picked raspberry; Memento, tuxedo black
Die: Clearly Besotted, happy
Thanks for visiting today, I'm really pleased you found the time. And keep crafting!
