Watercolor birthday

I managed to finish one more birthday card with watercolor lifting technique.  I used Distress inks and an old Penny Black floral stamp.  The sentiment is a rubber stamp from Stamp-a-Mania.
This card could be used for other occasions, but I put a birthday message on the inside.

More birthday cards

I had a little interruption in card making with a storm that knocked out our power for 16 hours.  Fortunately, most of the time was at night and I could stay warm in the bed.  The harder part was that I could have nothing warm to eat.  When the power returned, I really enjoyed a hot cup of tea.

I have now made 2 more family birthday cards, but have a few more to go.

The butterfly card was made like the last post, with watercolor lifting.  The Snoopy card was made by brayering ink into embossing folder to transfer color.  I used a die to cut hole in top layer to expose stamped Snoopy under it.  The pinked circle was a die with same circle die for inside.
