#Happy Birthday

Hi Everyone!  I got this really fun Avery Elle Smile stamp on my DT package and already had the opportunity to use it on a layout.  I thought it would also look really great water colored, so I decided to make a card too.
First, I stamped the image on Tim Holtz water color paper with archival ink.  I wanted the camera to look kind of similar to the instagram camera, so I used two brown distress markers to color directly on to the image and then I used a paint brush to spread the color around.

Since the image only has three lines creating the stripes below the lens, I hand drew one more so I could color all four colors that are on an instagram camera.


For my sentiment, I added the #happybirthday from the same set.
I just love the way this card turned out!

See you next week! --Nicole
