Seize The Birthday - Bold and Bright


Time for a new challenge at Seize The Birthday, and this week our topping is Bold and Bright.  I went for one big bold bright flower, and a bold sentiment to match.  The stamps aren't even floral - they're from the Hero Arts Brush Strokes set:


I stamped the images with Distress Inks, then lightly spritzed the watercolour paper to make the colours bleed out.  Once it was dry I scribbled some outlines with a fineliner and stamped the sentiment.

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the team, and play along with us.  You don't have to go bold and bright, you can do any birthday project.
