I first took a piece of watercolour cardstock and cut it down to approximately 3 1/2″ wide by 5 1/8″ tall. I then took six colours of Distress Oxide Inks and blended them onto the background in rainbow order.
(Distress Oxide Inks Used: Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade, Scattered Straw, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, Seedless Preserves)
Once they were all ink blended I splattered on some water droplets to the background. Picked it up with a paper towel and dried off the background with a heat tool. I then cut the word ‘Hugs‘ three times from the centre of the ink blended panel. I made sure to keep all the inside pieces too, so I could adhere them later.
I added foam tape onto the back of my ink blended panel and adhered it onto a white card base. I then adhered the insides of the letters too, so you would easily make out the words.
Lastly, I white heat embossed the ‘It’s Your Birthday’ sentiment from Wishing You The Best onto a think black strip. I popped it up on foam tape and added a hemp cord bow to the side for some added texture.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed and I’ll see you all next time.
