Happy 30th Birthday...



Hey,

So my wonderful work colleague is turning 30..I adore her, she is awesome.

I wanted to make her something fun, because she is fun and keeps me sane.

I broke out two distress inks - Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry - and dabbed them onto my craft mat, spritzed with water and smooshed my paper into the inky mess.

I find the first time you do this, you get a pretty standard watercolour effect. I like to go back in and pick up some of the colours in certain areas - you can see where I have done this, because you can see little speckles of colour and some fatter more defined splodges.

I like the colours I ended up with. I stamped the sentiment and used co-ordinating pink Thickers Stickers for the number..

I wanted to keep it kind of edgy, so affixed the whole panel to the cardblank using hot pink staples..love to co-ordinate.
