Magenta Super Saturday: Happy Birthday with Distress Blending

Hi I'm over at the Magenta blog today, and you can see that post here.  I very much felt like making a happy card today. I've been feeling a bit down lately, and bright happy colors cheer me up.

I made the background of this card by blending Distress Inks through the wonderful Square Silhouette stencil designed by Nathalie. I love the uneven edges of the stencil design.

After blending the colors, I flicked a little water all over the square to get this speckled look.

I then stamped the whimsical Graceful Tri-Petals stamp in Versamark over the panel, and embossed in gold. I decided to add more color to the petals with color pencils, and it was so easy and fast to do.

I chose out some pencils and made a quick swatch of them to find colors that would go well with the blends.

At the end, I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. I cut the panel out with my current favorite edger, the Crimped Frame Die from The Greetery, and added 3 enamel dots.

I love how the gold embossing made it look.

I hope you enjoy! Stay safe out there everyone!
