Happy Birthday

Happy Monday everyone!  I'm back with another card featuring new products from the 2022 Spring release.

I started by using a Gel Plate to create the background for my card.  I sprinkled some Ken Oliver Color Burst Powders onto the Gel Plate and misted it with plain water.  Next I pressed watercolor color paper onto the Gel Plate to pick up the color.  I dried the paper and pressed it again onto the plate to deepen the color.  When the background was dry, I placed a stencil over the paper and used a baby wipe to remove some of the color.  It's a very subtle look because the watercolor paper absorbs the ink.  Next, I spattered the paper with gold ink.


Next, I die cut the Exquisite Leaf frame from white cardstock and used a blending brush to add a little gold metallic ink the the frame.  I glued the frame to the background and adhered it to a kraft card base.

I die cut the shadow from the Happy Birthday die from foil paper and the words from white cardstock.  I used foam tape to adhere it to the card front.


To finish the card, I added some Fairy Drops to the card front. 

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great week!






Oh my that is gorgeous, love the background technique you used and the touches of gold to the leaf frame is wonderful!
