Happy birthday to you!

Hi there!

I have a card to share I made for my hubby, who's birthday is... today!





I used the same embossing folder from Sizzix , I used to make this card, but instead of using it to emboss, I used it as a stamp, applying 3 different colors water paint (Derwent Inktense blocks). It took a couple of tries experimenting with the right amount of water and  paint, but in the end, I love the outcome!

I added a Silhouette cut sentiment , with off sets in green and white. Enamel dots to complete the design.

My card was inspired by :

Pinterest inspired challenge : Photo inspiration.

Happy little stampers CAS Challenge : Embossing folder stamping

Seize the birthday  ~ Playing with the no toppings option.

                      



Thanks for visiting me today... I will be back later today with my inspiration card for this week's Paper Players challenge!

O, dit lyk wonderlik, vrou!!! Jy het so fantasties gedoen om met die EF te stempel en hoe absoluut perfek is dit nie vir die inspirasie foto nie!!!!! Die manier wat jy die 'Happy' so in drie lae gedoen het lyk pragtig!!!! Ek's mal oor die klerue waarmee jy gewerk het!!! Dit is so 'n lieflike kaartjie vir manlief - ek weet sommer hy was baie in sy skik daarmee!!!! Veels geluk aan hom en hoop julle het 'n baie lekker dag saam gehad!!!!
Groete
