Painted Happy Birthday

I am here to share a card I made just for fun!

I used a combination of Broken China, Cracked Pistachio and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Inks to create this lovely background. 


I swiped a little of the ink, one colour at a time, onto a craft sheet, spritzed with water and then smooshed the paper into the ink, drying with a heat tool between each layer of ink


I used the Broken China Ink to colour a separate piece of watercolour paper and then die cut the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment


I added a few enamel dots and made a coordinating envelope to finish! 

This card is for my BIL who is celebrating his 70th birthday on Sunday :-)


Thanks for looking!

Such a pretty card. Great colors. I love the 'this envelope contains...' portion on the back....is that a stamp or did you create it in software?

Hi Lois, what a wonderful background you've created with those oxide inks! They really make your die-cut Happy Birthday pop. Great choices of embellishments, too. The enamel dots look like droplets since they match your colours so perfectly. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

Awesome background with the oxide inks...I must try your idea of smooshing and drying in between adding colors! Awesome die cut for the happy birthday too! Thank you for playing with us at Seize the Birthday!

Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful birthday card at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week. Your oxide distressed background is such a beautiful combination of colours and I think the enamel dots make a great pizzazz statement. Your envelope sentiment cracked me up. Very cool!
