Birthday card, Festive Friday challenge 0008
I needed a birthday card for a grandson, and I've only got 4 days left to make and get it to him in the mail, so this had to be a quicky. Doing a challenge aways helps me get started and Festive Friday had a watercolor challenge, that helped me choose colors as I have a hard time making the masculine cards, I know most of us do.
I choose the Happy Birthday framelit for the center. First I did my watercolor, mixed a few drops of water with one or two drops of refil ink, spritzed my watercolor card with water then added some of each ink. After I had it covered I patted the excess off with a paper towel.
White that was drying I got out a new stamp set, Around the Corner. I put it on the Stamp positioner and stamped the left corner, then put in the die cut piece and the second corner. I cropped my paper close and used a corner rounder on two corners, added the little birthday hat and a few sequins, then matted it with black for accent, the black really made a difference. I wrapped my white twine around the right side and glued it all together.
I hope you enjoy, the photo is not the best, I am so sorry, my camera seems to have issues I couldn't resolve, I may have to give that one up.
So, here is your link to the challenge.
