Happy Birthday to Effie! 


Here is a birthday card for her. This card already left my hand. I hope she can get this card before her birthday.

I started off with a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 A2 watercolor paper. I used Tribal Chic Borders stamp to make a background. This stamp has 12 individual border lines so it’s fun to make backgrounds with them as I made in this card.  I applied distress ink (Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves ) on the stamp and then I sprayed water. Don’t spray too much! After that I stamped it on watercolor paper randomly.  Next I stamped a bear image and a birthday hat image from  Honey Bears stamp set on another watercolor paper using Noir dye ink (When I stamped a bear image I changed the bear’s face). After that I used Zig real brush markers for coloring. Than I fussy cut the bear and adhered it down on the background paper. After that I stamped numbers on the background. Lastly I used Hey Foxy stamp set for making a banner. I stamped a banner image and a sentiment on black cardstock using Hampton White Pigment ink  and then I fussy cut it and taped it down on  the paper.
