Birthday Squiggles

Hi all!  Happy Friday!  Well, we got more snow yesterday.  Kids had their 4th and hopefully last snow day of this school year.  Based on my three outings to shovel, I’d say we got close to 9 inches.  We are running out of room for the snow banks.  I’m reaching my cutoff point for winter.  🙂

Today I wanted to share the cards I made for a stamping get together last weekend.  Squiggles and scribbles are very in right now and I saw a fantastic tag on Instagram {by the way, you can follow me there @pinkroomtherapy} that inspired this card.

 This was actually my second attempt with this card, but I actually like it more!  I stamped the squiggle from Whimsical Wishes in Versamark on a {pre-cut with Blueprints 13} watercolor panel.  I was looking to do 4 squiggles, but realized they were too far apart for my liking {annoyance of Versamark} so I squeezed another squiggle in there.  I then embossed them with white embossing powder.  Next up was coloring them with my gelatos and a watercolor brush.  The sentiment is from Whimsical Wishes as well and I added in a trio of sequins.  The card base is a beautiful Ocean Mist {I think} from Gina K.

This was my first attempt.  My squiggles were embossed with clear embossing powder vs the white of above.  I prefer the white embossing powder. Again some sequins and a Melon Berry from PTI card base.

Here’s my lovely group of friends with our creations on Sunday.
