Rainbow Striped Birthday Card

Hello everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you this Rainbow Striped Birthday Card.

For my card I used a 'Plaid Maker' ARTploarations Stencil. I blended Distress Inks through the stencil on a white cardstock paper panel using Mini Ink Blending Tool. When I was satisfied with colors, I removed the stencil and splattered the panel with water. I will never get bored of Distress Ink magic and how it reacts with water. :o)

Next up was a sentiment. I heat embossed in white on a black cardstock paper the sentiment form Jane's Doodles 'Belated Birthday' stamp set.

As a finishing touch, I embellished the card with enamel dots. :o)
