Happy Birthday Water Color Card for THE CUTTING CAFE
I really enjoyed making this card. I started with Regina's THE CUTTING CAFE You Color My World digi stamp set & printed out the image larger than normal. It's a PDF, so you just print at 130% instead of 100%. I wanted to make my own background paper using the printable & water colors.
The water color looked nice, but it seemed to be lacking something, so out came some Tattered Angels clear shimmer spray. It made the printed lines bleed a little and added a really nice shimmer you can't quite see here. Then I added some glitter glue. All this wet work required waiting over night to finish the card. I KNOW, I am not patient either...it was hard to wait!
I trimmed the edges off and then cut out that scallop near the top for a faux shaker card look. I used a little of the clear cardstock that Regina sells and then matted the whole thing up, after adding some sequins and some little baby gems.
The little owl is from a clear stamp set also from the Cafe and was water colored as well. Added more glitter so he'd match the rest of the card and some little gem eye balls. Tucked in a few leaves and a flowers! Love it!
I'm excited to send this card out and I can't wait to use up the little scrap I have. It's all so pretty!
Happy Hump Day!
