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.
