Birthday Waves


A quick and easy card today.  A couple of stamps, paint some Distress Ink waves and you're done!  I'll probably make a few of these in different colour schemes - they'd be great for male cards.  I'm playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch:


I've used one of the three colour options from Make The Day Special:


I'm also entering it into Winnie & Walter Join In To Win

And Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes


And another entry into Keep It Simple - Watercolour.

Stamps: Winnie & Walter The Big, The Bold and The Happy
Distress Inks: Scattered Straw, Bundled Sage, Evergreen Bough

  5. Bravo! You have achieved a beautiful look I am even more impressed because I attempted to make exactly the same card (different colour) and ended up with 8 rejects in the bin!

  15. I love how you've softened the shades in the colours to make the background - it's beautiful. Classy and elegant - just how I like my cards.
    Thanks so much for playing along with our first colour challenge at Make the Day Special Stamp Store.
