You can take any sort of inspiration from my card above and create your own project. It might be the layout, colour palette (Night of Navy, Pool Party + Watermelon Wonder or similar), balloon/party/birthday theme.
I decided to focus on the layout as I had some shiny new products to use from the upcoming Occasions Catalogue (starts 4 Jan). I began with some Watercolor Paper and dampened it a little where I planned to stamp. I then took my flower stamps and used the rock and roll technique to ink them up. Before I stamped, I spritzed each with a little water to make the colours run together on the rubber. Once I was happy with the amount of blending, I stamped them onto my wet paper where they ran even further. Once the flowers were stamped, I stamped some leaves as well and tapped my paintbrush to give some splatter.
Once dry, I added some die cuts over the top of my ink. I love that the die cuts give the flowers a defined edge but there’s still that element of artsy, mess underneath.
I mounted the card on a piece of Pool Party (seriously this colour goes with EVERYTHING) which I had stamped with the stripes from the Ready to Pop stamp set (a much underrated set). To finish, I added a bow, a tiny little tag and some Sprinkles, which are quite possible my new favourite product!
