Birthday Cheer

Good Morning and Happy Saturday!
Glad I had time to create a simple, fun card today. 

I just picked up this great stamp from Impression Obsession and wanted to play with it.
I immediately thought of colour and thought a rainbow would work perfectly as a backdrop for the silhouette image.  
So, I began by masking off my white card front with some Post-It Tape, then sponged on some Distress Oxide inks in a variety of rainbow colours.  Fun to see how easily they blend together.
Next, I splattered with some water to lift the ink in places and to give the background more interest.
I then removed the tape and placed the piece inside my Misti.  I stamped the girl and the sentiment with black Memento ink, then clear embossed them.
I mounted that onto a piece of blue cardstock, then to my white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

The black memento ink and the misti sure has produced a fabulous black and stunning silhouette. I must look for that ink in my stash. Fabulous rainbow background and those oxides have blended beautifully. This looks like one happy birthday card and that image says it all....x.
