Birthday Wishes

birthday wishes

I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far!  Several weeks ago my husband and I received an anniversary card (see below) and I immediately knew that I wanted to try and make a similar looking card.

It was really easy to make and each time you do it, you get a completely different look!  I used one of my acrylic blocks, several  Stampin’ Write markers and a spritzer.  I colored directly onto my block with the markers. There’s no right way to do this.  Then I spritzed it with water and stamped it onto my paper.  I did try doing this directly onto the base of my card but I was never happy with it – it always seemed crooked to me.  So, I ended up cutting it and mounting it onto Bermuda Bay cardstock.  As I said, this is really easy and it will look very different each time you do it.  You can lightly stamp it or press down harder for a different look.  I used Whisper White cardstock which is fine as long as you don’t get the paper too terribly wet but you can use watercolor paper too.  The markers I used were:  Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise and Island Indigo.  The first three can only be purchased as a set in the Brights collection but the Island Indigo can be purchased separately.  See the product list below.

I finished the card by embossing my sentiment (from the set Build a Birthday) with silver embossing powder.  Give this technique a try!  I’d love to see what you create!
