Approaching Perfection Splish Splash Challenge Card

I am so happy with how this card turned out! You never know what you are going to get when you start splashing a smooshing inks. This card was inspired by The Spot Creative Challenge #145.

I started by splattering ink using my water painters and ink refills onto a piece of watercolour paper. Then I splattered some Wink of Stella. When I create backgrounds like this I tend to work with multiple papers so that I can use up all of the water colour that I create. It is also nice to have ready to go water coloured backgrounds for other projects. Next I stamped the Happy Birthday from the FREE Sale-a-bration stamp set Approaching Perfection in Bermuda Bay and a row of candles from the same set in Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry and Pacific Point. I punched those out using the Label Me Lovely Punch and mounted the whole image on a 2-1/4″ black circle. After that, I embossed a strip of 1-1/4″ X 3-1/2″ Bermuda Bay cardstock with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and snipped the ends with the Tailored Tag Punch. I tied a double strand of white twine and made a bow. The black and white DSP I used is from the True Love 12X12 DSP pack in the new Jan – June Mini Catalogue. The rest is pretty straight forward gluing, adhering with Dimensionals and embellishing with a dash of sequins. You’ll find a full list of supplies below.
