Have a Tree-mendous Birthday!

Today is the birthday of a very special lady. It's Laura Weed's special day, who is the fearless leader of the Stampendous team! We decided to get a fun Birthday Hop going for her, and here's what I've made.

I tried to catch some of fellow DT'er Tenia's funky vibe for my card. I just lover her style, and I would love to try to create more things like her. She's rad! I used the Forest Sayings Perfectly Clear set. I stamped both imaged on to watercolor paper with Tuxedo Back Memento Ink, and then painted them with my watercolors. While the pieces were still wet, I sprinkled kosher salt on top. This absorbs some of the paint, and leaves a really cool mottled effect behind once you wipe away the salt. You'll want to wait until the piece is dry to do that, and you can speed up the process with an embossing gun if you'd like.

I also used one of the border stamps from the Life Words Perfectly Clear set. And I can't forget to mention my chevron washi tape. It's got just enough metallic in it to make it pop.

Happiest of Birthdays to you, Laura! Thank you for being our Fairy Stamp-mother! May you have a spectacular day!!!
Below are the rest of the ladies that are posting today. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
