Happy Birthday To Me

I planned on spending most of the day stamping today, but somehow, half of the day is gone, and I've only made 2 cards. I am enjoying the day though. It's mostly sunny and warm. Nothing pressing to get done. Plus, I made myself a yummy cake that's loaded with fat and calories, and I plan to enjoy it with my family later :)!





I had to try this technique that's been showing up so many places. It's so fun! You stamp your image on shimmery white paper. Heat emboss. Then spray the image with water. Then with a aquapainter or watercolor brush, add color with re-inkers. The colors spread out and blend because of the water on the paper. Allow to dry and then cut out.

This makes a pretty impressive image!



All supplies SU:
Set: Fifth Avenue Floral
Cardstock: White, Kiwi Kiss, Bella Rose DSP, Shimmery White
Ink: Summer Sun, Tangerine Tango, Pixie Pink, Rose Red
