AAA Birthday Game #2 - Use Water Colours

Wow! Already it's time for the second challenge at AAA Birthday! Where did last month disappear to?

This month the theme is to use water colours on a birthday card. Here's my idea:

First up I created the splodgy background and once that was dry I stamped the Uniko butterflies on top. I created a watercoloured look with them by inking up the stamp and spritzing it with water before stamping. Two got a liberal coating of water and one not quite so much.

I finished off with a trio of clear gems. I love how they pick up the background colour and look a little like water droplets.

Stamps: Uniko, English country Garden butterflies, Simply said Birthday
inks: SU, tempting turquoise, melon mambo; Versafine Clair, nocturne
Clear gems from my stash

We have four fabulous Guest Designers to inspire your creativity this month and of course the AAA Birthday DT have created amazing examples too! Go check them all out HERE.

Huge thanks for spending some of your time looking at my blog today, you know i enjoy your company.

And keep crafting!
