Happy 29th Birthday


Dana here with a birthday card for you! I used two wood stamps available at Hobby Lobby Deep Breath Birthday and Happy 29th, perfect stamps to pair together!

I started by stamping the Deep Breath stamp on water color paper. Then i used my distress markers and some water to color the fish and birthday cake. Next i fussy cut them both out.

For the background i used a wave stencil, holding it in place over a white card base with washi tape. Then i used two different blue distress markers to sketch or squiggle in the stencil. I used the fine tip side of the markers, it dosen;t have to be perfect, i just really like the look i get. I did this only about half way up the stencil.

Next i stamped the sentiment above the waves, then added the fish and cake with foam tape.
