Birthday card #29

On Thursday Splitcoaststamper site the challenge was "Just spray it" I inked the flowers and stems with stampin up marker then I misted the stamp with water before stamping on card stock. A soft look to go with my favorite way of stamping (Ink with markers and use different colors)

Happy Stamping!

With the bird stamp from the Stampin Up "Always" stamp set this quick card was fun to make. I inked the bird in gable green and before stamping my card stock I lined the edge of the stamp with a turquoise marker. The bright colors for this card were inspired by Beate's inspiration challenge.
