appy Birthday card using the "Swoosh" technique, which is one of several watercolor variations.
For this card, you will also need a craft mat or waxed paper, a heat gun if desired, and an adhesive of your choice.
Cut card stock at the following dimensions:
Base: Lemon Lime Twist
Layer 1 Black: 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
Layer 2 Watercolor: 3 3/4" x 5"
Inside Whisper White: 3 3/4" x 5"
Swipe the Lemon Lime Twist ink pad onto a craft mat (or waxed paper). Add water using the spritzer; it shouldn't take much. Dip the window sheet into the ink and use it to apply the ink to the watercolor paper. Each time will be different, but you can play around with it to get the desired affect. Use a heat gun to dry and repeat the process with Tranquil Tide ink. This is one of the variety of watercolor called the "Swoosh" technique.
Cut the Happy Birthday using Black card stock on the Big Shot. Assemble the card front as shown.
Stamp the inside of the card as shown. Note that the watercolor stamp in the background was done with 3rd generation stamping, which means I did not re-ink the stamp before stamping. Adhere to the inside of the card.
