Swirly Bird Bundle Happy Birthday
Simply love this card! I love the colour combination of Mint Macaroon, Lost Lagoon, Tip Top Taupe and Early Espresso. Wasn't sure how it was going to turn out when making the decorative paper. My intention was to wash swirls of Lost Lagoon onto watercolour paper with an aqua painter and to fill the white gaps with the Mint and Taupe. If you try this remember to dry off after applying different inks or it could end up with a murky puddle. When it was completely dry I stamped the swirly stamp with Early Espresso over the Lost Lagoon swirls and the smaller swirls stamp into the gaps. Assemble the card as seen. The sentiment is from Endless Birthday Wishes. The swirl was cut from Early Espresso and decorated with Lost Lagoon ribbon.
