Get Messy Birthday Card

Pin It

Birthday Sundaes has a challenge this week called "Get Messy Birthday Card" (use lots of inking, paints or mists).

Here is my card:

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: White and Orange/Yellow
Inkadinkado Clear Stamps, Birthday Cupcake (Large Cupcake and "Sweet Birthday Wishes")
StazOn Jet Black Ink
Sugarloaf Whispers Strokes Markers
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Happy Birthday
Five Different Colors of Pigment Inks
Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circle Large, 3rd Largest
Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Five, 3rd Largest
Mounting Tape
Water Mister

First, I embossed some white card stock, then wiped the pigment inks all over. Next, I misted it with a little water. Then, I took the sponge (I used a make-up wedge) and wiped over the ink in a circular motion. Let dry. I cut out the Labels Five shape and used the same technique on that. I stamped the cupcake with StazOn Ink and colored that with the Sugarloaf Markers. I fussy cut the cupcake. Cut the large rectangle and circle, then I assembled everything together.

I had fun with trying something different...and this is why I love challenges! Don't be afraid to experiment...what's the worst that can happen? You throw out the paper and start again! However, you just might make a (Now if I would only take my own advice and try vinyl...hahaha...someday!).

Thanks for stopping by...I would love to hear from you.

imagine what you could do...
