Paper Sweeties August 2016 Inspiration Challenge

Hello my stampy friends!
It's time for a new 


It is our FOURTH Birthday!!!!

To celebrate, Debbie is giving away a 
$100 gift card to her 
Paper Sweeties Shop!!! WOW!!!
So we hope you will join this month as we celebrate!

Here is the sweet inspiration photo:

 I love all the sweet flowers and macaroons in the photo, but I was mostly inspired by the pink, aqua and green colors. 
I created a birthday card!

I started the card by sponging Peeled Paint, Tumbled Glass and Picked Raspberry Distress inks through a circle stencil onto white card stock. I lightly brushed some water across the stenciled area to get a watercolor effect. Next I added lots of splatters.

I stamped the banner with the Birthday Banners stamp set and the gift boxes from the Let's Party stamp set with black Archival ink onto some white water color paper. The banners and gift boxes were colored with Zig Color Brush markers.  For lots of fun texture, I added Glossy AccentsLiquid Pearl drops and Wink of Stella Glitter pens to the images.

We hope you will join us this month here at PAPER SWEETIES
You could be the lucky winner of a
$100 gift card to the Paper Sweeties Shoppe!

for some wonderful inspiration!
