It dried to a lovely sheen.

Hello! We've got a new challenge for you at Seize The Birthday, chosen this week by Jules, and it's Make It Musical.
Or you could play along with our Anything Goes theme, as long as it's a birthday project.
Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog to see how the rest of the team and our surprise party guests have interpreted this theme, and join us with your creation.

Woohoo, I've joined the Visible Image Design Team! So for my first make, what better card to make than a celebration card?
I started off by sponging the lower portion of my panel with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink, then stencilled some Vintage Photo through the Drizzle stencil (not just for cake!).
I stamped the gin bottle, glass and lime wedge from the Keep Your Gin Up stamp set, diecut them using the coordinating dies, and arranged them on my panel along with the Celebrate stamp from Birthday Wishes for placement.
I stamped Celebrate in a nice bold black.
I went with lime, because it's a summery colour, and it's supposed to be summer here!
Here are the products I used. You can click on the individual links below, or you can click here for all the goodness of the main site.

Hello, we've got a new challenge for you at Seize The Birthday, chosen by JoAnn, who wants us to make a shaped card - any shape except the standard US A2 (or the equivalent UK A6 for me).
I went with a DL slimline card, which worked perfectly with this stamp set that has been in my stash for ages. I picked up some spritzed Distress Inks from an acrylic block onto my panel, and it looked sufficiently like grass, flowers and trees to not need anything more doing to it. I stamped the sausage dog (Woodware), coloured and fussy cut it and adhered it the panel then mounted the whole thing onto the folded card base. The sentiment is from the same set.
Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for some more fabulously shaped cards from the rest of the design team and from our surprise party guests, and join in the fun. If you don't want to make a shaped card, you can still play along with a regular sized card in our Anything Goes category.
