celebrating you

Hi there! Ashley here today sharing a fun card I made with the Paper Wing's Productions Text Melange stamp set with Ken Oliver Crafts Color Burst Watercolor Powder to make a really cool base for my card. I started with white cardstock and chose my stamp, which I heat embossed with white ink. You could use clear embossing powder or any color you choose. Next you'll spritz your card with some water. I keep a water bottle handy at my desk. 
After you spritz some water on your paper, you apply the pigment powder. The water mixes with the powder and creates a really neat affect. You can add more water or more powder and just keep playing. The white embossing powder will act as a resist.
When I achieved the look I wanted, I heat set it. Next I grabbed my PWP Let's Eat Cake clear stamp set to stamp my cake stand and my piece of cake. I stamped the images, colored them with Copic markers, and fussy cut them. I grabbed my We R Memory Keepers Fuse tool and made a little shaker of some sequins and wood veneer pieces and adhered my cake right on the top. Since I had hot pink staples handy, I used those to adhere the shaker pocket to my card base.
Then I grabbed my Staz On ink to stamp my sentiment on the inside of the card. At the last minute, I decided to add some candles to the inside as well and I colored those with Copics. 
Here's my finished card.What do you think?
