Vibrant Mixed Media Distress Happy Birthday Card

Thank you so much for joining me for this Vibrant Mixed Media Distress Happy Birthday Card, Let's jump right in.

I used a piece of distress watercolour cardstock and placed it in my splat box and sprayed it with some Distress Resist Spray for some texture in the background, once that was dry I added some texture paste through a stencil in a few areas for even more texture. I brought in two colours of Distress Spray stain in Salvaged Patina and Saltwater Taffy, and Flickering Candle Mica Spray, I added the three colours and some water until I was happy with the colours on the background. I then stamped on the background with Picked Raspberry, Wild Honey and Evergreen Bough Archival inks to added interest.

For the sentiment I cut the Happy Birthday sentiment out of the Bold text #1 die set, I cut 3 layers of regular cardstock and one out of purple metallic cardstock for the word birthday and layered them all up. I added some notches in the panel for some extra interest and adhered it on top of a purple metallic matte, then adhered that on top of an A2 card base. I brought in some Simon Says Stamp Moonshine sequins and called this card done.
