Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set in Card Kit

This is another variation of a card in the February card kit. I used the Happy Moments stamp set from the Sale-a-bration mini catalog (119125 or 118664, free with $50 purchase) and Itty Bitty Backgrounds (114996, $14.95). After stamping the dots around the edges of the water color paper, I took my wet Aqua Painter and, picking up the ink from stamping, "painted" the "mat" around the focal image. Look closely and you can see the flowers and "happy birthday" stamped between the certainly celery strip and the layered image.

Card stock and classic ink pads used for this card are Rich Razzleberry, Pretty in Pink, Basic Gray, and Certainly Celery as well as Watercolor Paper. The torn edges add texture. Stampin' Dimensionals (104430, $3.95) add depth to the focal point. The final embellishment is the addition of a button fastened with a glue dot after threading and tying with linen thread.
