Ink Splattered Happy Birthday Card

Hello! Dawn Rene here to share a birthday card I made for The Rubber Cafe'.

I layered some stamps and then added color with an ink splatter technique. It was so much fun to make!

Here is a brief tutorial....

1. The base of the 5" x 7" card is white card stock. I stamped the Don't Be Washi stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on the card stock.

3. I sprayed Dylusions Ink Spray - Pure Sunshine and Dylusions Ink Spray - Postbox Red on my work mat, added some water, wet a medium size paint brush, and flicked the ink on the card randomly.

4. While the card was drying, I stamped butterflies from Butterfly Set on vellum and fussy cut them out.
