Herd You Had a Birthday!

Happy Tuesday!  I have been on vacation for a week!  Went to the beach and a couple of other out of town trips.  I have not had a chance to get into the crafting zone until this morning.   I made a fun card to share!  

For this card I did some more experimenting with watercolor backgrounds.  This time I used watercolor paper.  I tried using reinkers and ink pads.   I think I need to get some actual watercolors.  It seems the color saturation would be more intense with those.  Or, maybe I just need to use different shades of the reinkers together for some contrast.  Like I said, I am still experimenting.

I am playing along with CASE this Sketch  and The Paper Players.  I created my watercolor background scene of sky and grass using summer crush and limeade inks.   I should have used some darker hues of the greens for some contrast.    I die cut and stamped my cute little cows using MFT The Whole Herd stamp set and die namics. 

I colored with copics.  I used Blueprints 2 frame to die cut the watercolor paper.  I used MFT Stitched Basic Edges on the bottom to comply with sketch look.  I stamped my sentiment and added a few sequins and my card was done.   

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
