Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone,

Today I have another card using one of the backgrounds I created when I was playing with my new Distress Ink Pads. 

For this card I applied the various colors of Distress Oxide Ink directly onto card in rainbow order. After all the colors were on the card I then used a paintbrush and water to wash over all the colors and finally spritzed some water onto the background using a spray water bottle.

I recently saw a card on line created by Diane Zechman which I liked so I used that for the inspirations of the layout of this card.

The image is an older The Greeting Farms stamps I have had for a while, I had stamped and colored it recently so it was waiting for a card to be put on to and the colors of the background worked with the colors I used on the mouse.

For the inside of the card, I added another strip from the Distress Oxide background I had created and a birthday sentiment.

Stamps: Library Mouse - The Greeting Farm; Special Birthday - Hero Arts; Birthday Mia (birthday sentiment outside) - Some Odd Girl
Paper: White; Black
Dies: ModaScrap Stitched Fishtail Banners - Elizabeth Craft Designs
Other: Black Ink; Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide, Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide, Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide, Peeled Paint Distress Oxide, Broken China Distress Oxide, Wilted Violet Distress Oxide, Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape - ECD; Sequins; Foam Tape; Copics
