Hey there, blog friends....

Heather is hosting a Designer's Choice Challenge for us this week at The House That Stamps Built.  Her challenge is "Happy Birthday".  

When I was creating this card, I was hoping to get a "dreamy" like focal image with watercoloing.  I first wet the watercolor paper then inked my stamp and stamped it on the wet surface.  I did a first and second generation stamping for each image.  

I started with a watercolor of RI Stamps #10305-F "Striped Flower Solid".  I made a mask the same size as the forefront panel and stamped the flowers and leaves from RI #10204-D "Leaf Cluster Solid" and  RI# 10207-E "Flower Cluster Solid".  The sentiment is a partial from RI #2502-I "Wishing you Joys".  

Come on over and join myself and all the Rock Stars in Heather's challenge.  Check out what they've done.

                            Deonna - Heather - Joy - Kathy - Laurie - Patti J - Shirley

Details for the challenge and how to enter and what you can win by entering can be found at The House.  I hope you'll get a chance to join us and if you're celebrating a birthday this month....HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
