Seize The Birthday - Water


We've got a new challenge for you at Seize The Birthday, and this time our optional topping is Water.

'So, where's the water?', I hear you ask.  Well, rather than depict water, I decided to use water.  I bought this really cool handmade paper a while back.  It's full of collaged movie posters images so all I had to do was sprinkle on some Brusho powders, spritz with water then cut to size.  Added some Tim Holtz celluloid strip and a sentiment, and it's done.

Part of the paper includes a poster image of Titanic, which looked great spritzed with blue Brusho, but given the outcome, it's not really appropriate for the front of a card, is it?

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the Design Team, including our two new teamies, Vicki Dutcher and Barbara Campbell, and the last project from our current Guest Designer, Jacquie Southas.

Don't forget, the topping is optional, so if you don't want to use the water theme, any birthday project is fine.
