Happy Birthday – watercolored

While I was playing I created another background with the Blue Breeze Kaleidacolor pad using the technique talked about here – I used the piece  I created to die cut the word happy and make this card:


I love how the inkpad made a perfect ombre background for me!!

I used the Happy cutaway from Winnie & Walter and I used a small amount of adhesive to adhere the happy and then I added a couple of mini staples to it!! Using a speckle stamp for SU! I added some color around the word!! And the word ‘Birthday’ came from the Winnie & Walter set Sugar Rush. A fun, fast, easy card!!!

I am linking up this card to the following challenges:

    Fabulous card, and I just love your ombre die cut. You are very brave to try all that spatter. It looks great, but I am too much of a control freak to ever allow myself to go nuts like that. You are my hero for trying it.
