For my card today, I’m getting inky.

On Tim Holtz watercolor paper, I sprayed a rainbow of Distress Spray Stains. I tried to keep the spray towards the edge so I just have splatters in the middle

After the panel was dry, I stamped the Parallelogram background onto the background using Versafine Nocturne Ink.

For the sentiment, I’m using the Big Old Birthday stamp and die set. I went for a classic look of stamping in Black ink onto White cardstock. This has been a popular set so if it’s sold out, be sure to click the Notify Me button.

After trimming out the sentiment with the coordinating die, I popped it up in the center using foam squares.
