Hello there :)
I hope you're ready to party this Monday morning because I've got a couple of little characters on my card today that seem to have it all wrapped up....
I have stamped and water-coloured the images on watercolour card then used the dies to trim them out... it makes a much neater and easier job than I could do with scissors, especially around those balloon strings and the spikes on the alligators back!!!
I brushed on a simple wash of Distress ink for a water-colour background on my card base and added some gold and grey splatters too.
There are great sentiments in both stamp sets but I wanted something a little bolder for this card and the brushstroke style writing in Wplus9's Strictly Sentiments 5 suited my needs not to mention the fun phrases. I thought this would be perfect for a kids card, inside I've selectively inked 'it's your birthday' from the same set :)
Thanks for stopping by :)
