Watercolor Birthday …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Another round of snow to deal with yesterday.  You just never know how big your driveway is until you have to shovel it … twice!  Well … if I look at the bright side, I did get some much needed exercise today 🙂

Today’s card share was inspired by a questions from my stampin’ friend Kathie.  She wanted to know what you would do with the “watermark” stamp in the “Happy Watercolor” stamp set.  So here’s one idea …

I decided to do a rainbow effect with the stamp.  I chose Real Red, Elegant Eggplant, Pacific Point, Gumball Green and Daffodil Delight inks.  I did stamp off … after inking up my stamp, before stamping it onto my card front.

I think the hardest part of creating this card is keeping a straight line.  Once my watermarks were done, I chose the Happy Birthday stamp from the “Perfectly Penned” stamp set.

I matted it with Basic Black and added a black taffeta bow.  I did not realize until the card was completed and I was writing down my ingredients that I found out that ribbon is discontinued.  I think I will be sorting out my ribbons better this weekend!

I don’t like to use items that you cannot purchase, however you could substitute this ribbon for the pretty 1/8″ Black Taffeta or the 1/4″ Pacific Point Stitched Taffeta Ribbon.

To finish off my card, I added my trusty rhinestones in the corner … colored black with a Sharpie.  It just anchors the card.

Hope you enjoyed today’s colorful watercolor birthday.  Stop back tomorrow for another card using the “watermark” stamp and “Happy Watercolor” stamp set.

Have a wonderful day ~
