Happy, Happy Birthday

Happy Tuesday  peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made today.

I was playing around with my distress inks again and made this fun background.

I used Squeezed Lemonade, Salty Ocean and Picked Raspberry.

This time I applied my ink to a piece of acetate and then spritzed with some water and squished it onto my watercolor paper. I started with my middle color, the Salty Ocean and then went to the Squeezed Lemonade and then to the Picked Raspberry.
I really love how these colors combined and ran together. I spritzed a bit more water onto the piece as needed to get the colors to blend and flow. I hit the paper with my heat gun in between each color to set them and keep them from muddying up.

I used the MFT Pure Innocence Happy Banner  girl and colored her dress to match my BG using my copic markers.
She is die cut out with her matching die.
The balloons are from the MFT Somebunny stamp set and colored with copics as well. I cut out the balloons and added them to the base with foam tape. I just hand drew in the tails.
The happy banner girl is added to the base with foam tape as well.
I stamped the rest of the sentiment onto the base with Black Memento Ink. 

I am adding this to the Curtain Call Inspiration challenge:

Thanks for stopping by today!
