Hello Friend birthday card

I am on a challenge roll this week - so many awesome challenges to participate in! Today I have a card that I am submitting in two challenges:

First up, I found another new challenge blog - this one revolves around die cuts - The Cutting Edge Challenge Blog! SQUEAL! Great concept! This week is Challenge #2 and this is the inspiration:

I was inspired by the watercolor effect and those black splotches!

Next, Winnie & Walter stamps are having an awesome Share the Love Week featuring Tim Holtz's Distress Inks. Day 1 of Share the Love Week is to use Distress Inks to create a watercolor card! Um yes please!

I love being able to get a lot of mileage out of my supplies - and Tim Holtz's line of goodies excels at this!!!

Here is my card:

My background used Mustard Seed and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks, but I blended them a little too much when I smooshed my (water color) paper on the ink and got mostly green. Pretty none the less!

Here are some detail shots:

The top pic shows the Wink of Stella (clear) that I applied to my dragonfly along with a couple of splotches of Mr. Huey's Mist in Dewey on the wings. The flower and dragonfly were cut from water color paper that was smooched with Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks.

Here is the inside of my card - very simple - the sentiment is so bold that it can stand alone!

Thanks for visiting!

Ingredients: Winnie & Walter The Big, the Bold and the Happy; PTI Mega Mat Stack #4 die; Memory Box Chloe Set, Dragonfly dies
