Happy Birthday


I'm stopping in with a card i made for Papertrey Ink's Anniversary Challenges. This is for the Paper Crafting Alphabet Challenge, it was really fun and easy to do. They give a list of crafting things to do and you can use all of your first or last name or just the first three of either!

I decided to use the first three letters of my last name: W - Use a little water coloring, A - Add a border, R - Round some or all of your corners!

So i pulled out the PTI Modern Basics stamp set and for the watercolor component, i colored the solid butterfly with three colors of Distress Markers. Then i spritzed the colored image and then stamped on water color card stock. I also stamped it again on the panel, getting a lighter colored butterfly. I just repeated this until i had enough butterflies stamped on my panel. I used Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry and Ripe Persimmon.

After the stamping was dry i stamped the outline butterfly over just some of the water colored butterflies and then added the antenna to those butterflies. I also used Picked Raspberry and water to flick some splotches over the panel.

Next i pulled out the Happy Day stamp set and die, cutting the label shape from some water color paper. I did the same thing with the label image as i did the butterflies, using Seedless Preserves. Then i stamped the Happy Birthday on the inside of the label.

Since i need i a border, i decided to trim my panel taking out a strip from the left side of the panel. Then i added the two pieces (minus the strip i cut) to a black card base with foam tape. A easy way to add a border to your card!! Last i added the die cut label with some foam tape and rounded the bottom two corners!

Thanks so much for stopping by!! I'll be back in a while for my last card i made for the PTI Anniversary's Challenge!!
