IndigoBlu B.F.F. Birthday Card

I have a few birthdays to make cards in January.  This is for my friend of many years, we have so many happy memories, usually made over a bottle of wine at the kitchen table, so the sentiment I have used on this card seems especially apt.

I've created a background using three Distress Oxide Inks:  Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Lemonade and Picked Raspberry, which I then spritzed with water to make the colours run into each other.  I added extra colour by sprinking a Mica powder in Fuchsia over the wet surface.  The granules spread, creating a pleasing background.  I then used my heat gun to dry the card.

I used an IndigoBlu stamp called "B.F.F" designed by Kay Halliwell-sutton, stamped in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.  I added a small "Happy Birthday" sentiment in the bottom corner.
