happy birthday, shery

Dropping in today with a birthday card for a virtual birthday party for Shery Russ, the heart and soul of STAMPlorations.

I decided to make a one-layer card (Shery's blog is called That One Layer Mixed Media Girl) that I hope Shery will like. It's not really mixed media. But there is a certain grunge factor ;)

Distress Inks

I stamped and masked the sentiment then stamped the flowers around it, masking them sometimes too. I used Distress Inks so when I was finished I took a wet brush and softened the lines a bit. Even added some additional ink to the flowers with my brush. And splatters. Cuz splatters are always good. Like washi ;)

Check out this post over on the STAMPlorations blog for lots more birthday card inspiration. And have a great day.

I'm playing at:
Stamping Sensations - In my Garden
CAS colors and sketches - #279
Paper Players - Celebration
Just Us Girls - AG
