Watercooler Wednesday 131 – Kath’s All About Birthdays Challenge

Happy Wednesday my friends! Time for a challenge from Watercooler Wednesday.

We have a can’t miss challenge this week from Kath –

….because we always need birthday cards. And, we are always creating them!

I was in a watercolor mood going with this bright beauty –

libbystamps, stampin up, Happy Birthday Thinlits, Watercolor Paper, Pick a Pattern Washi Tape

Isn’t it pretty??

Very easy too. I used a clear block smeared in ink on wet Watercolor Paper to get the background effect. I used two alternating colors. Let it dry and then added the washi tape and the framelit sentiment. No stamping either! Can you believe it? 

This worked best adhering the Watercolor Paper onto Thick Whisper White card stock once dry. The regular was way too flimsy and curled with the thickness of the Watercolor Paper.

The Melon Mambo bow is retired ribbon, but it was perfect here.

Everyone created a different style of birthday card at Watercooler Wednesday. Check us out and link up a card. It’s too easy not too!
