Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday!

Another post from me today - just a quick one.

Using a new word die from Whimsy Stamps, I have created a card using watercolours (again!!).




This card is actually made by using 'scraps'. I had die cut the word a number of times for another card and wanted to use them up.  The middle 'Happy' was die cut from watercolour paper that I had used the Saturated Watercolouring Technique by Loll Thompson.

The words have been popped up using little foam squares that I have cut into pieces.

Inside the card -




When you do the Saturated Watercolouring Technique, there is always plenty of ink to soak up with pieces of card. This panel was one of many that I now have in my stash to use.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges

CASology - Birthday
Melonheadz - CAS


Thanks so much for looking xx

    Love your attention to the inside too - that's a pop of shocking pink when the recipient opens it.
