Impression Obsession Birthday Wishes Challenge

Hello, and welcome to IO's Birthday Wishes Challenge.  Time to pull out your birthday stamps and play along.  You just might win a $25 gift certificate to the IO store!

Today I decided to use my favorite color combo on my card, greens and purples.
Ginko Spray G13875
Happy Birthday 1  C14778

I taped off a border on recycled Bristol  and stamped the Ginko Spray onto it with distress ink.  I used a water brush with distress inks to watercolor the ginkgo images

When that was dry, I distressed the edges with peeled paint distress ink and my 
I-brush ink applicators.  I love these little dauber brushes for perfect blending and color application.  They are like the foam finger daubers, only with really soft, dense brush tips! 

I added some spatters, and a the Happy Birthday 1 verse, and peeled off the tape to finish my card.

Check out the other designer's inspiration cards on the IO blog post HERE.

Thanks so much for visiting today.
