Smooshed Birthday

Hi everyone. Today I had a little time to create a card for another birthday coming up this month. 

I decided to watercolour smoosh a panel and then layer a new die cut over the top.

Here it is -

I started by sprinkling purple brusho onto my craft mat, misting it with water, then smooshing my watercolour cardstock into the paint. I repeated this step a few times, drying with my heat gun in between. I did the same with a smaller panel so I could die cut my butterfly.

I also used a little Gold perfect pearls to smoosh with too. It's not quite evident in the photo but it gives it a subtle shine.

I used my new MFT Split Chevron Cover Up die to lay over the top of my panel.

I used my MISTI to stamp my sentiment (HLS Fun Birthday Sentiments) onto a linen cardstock.
I also used my WOS pen to give my butterfly some sparkle.

I would like to enter my card over at -

(Ive used the topping of Black, White, and one other colour)

Here is a list of my products used that you can purchase at HLS -
