Birthday wishes with water stamping

>> Saturday, August 11, 2012

Good morning!  
My card today features probably one of my very favorite DRS Designs stamps.  The silhouette branch is so versatile and so pretty and my small Birthday wishes greeting is wonderful as well. For my background, I chose to try the Wednesday tutorial over on SCS....Water Stamping.  I chose to do it a bit differently in that I didn't stamp with water but used a spray bottle to get the water onto the paper.  I sponged kiwi kiss, really rust and crushed curry....interesting outcome.  The silhouette branch was stamped randomly with burnt umber and so was the sentiment.  I dragged the edges through the burnt umber pad and distressed a bit right on the bg.  The sentiment is on a dimensional and some pretty ribbon and twine to complete it.  FYI...I ran out of dimensionals...shame, shame.  I saved some of my old rubber that has adhesive on it...I took the rubber off and it works just like a charm!  Voila!
Have a great day.

SO pretty, Pam! Love your bg and those branches are perfect with it. I probably need that stamp, lol.

One of my favorite stamps also! I normally use it very toned down and serious - now I see it's great with a fun kinda wild background too!
