Sunny and Splashy Happy Birthday

Hi, Friends......

I have been totally out of my groove on challenges for a couple of months, but I didn't want to miss out on submitting an entry into this month's Winnie & Walter Rerun Challenge! The Rerun set this month is Framed with Evelin T Designs. I don't own this set so I got inspired by the sunny and watery colors on the fabulous card made by Shay (HERE).

I used one of my watercolor marker refill water backgrounds for this card.

(I know...I am weird. Most people throw away their kids' old Crayola markers that haven't been used in years!! Not me. I stand all the similar colored markers together tips down in a jar containing a half inch or so of water to let them rehydrate and recharge. The intensely colored water that is leftover is used to make these backgrounds. LOVE!!!)

Products used include:
Winnie & Walter - In a Word: Happy Cutaway die
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - In a Word: Happy stamp set
Versafine ink - Onyx Black
Watercolor marker refill water background
Canson - Mixed Media Paper Spiral Bound Notebook
Scraps from my stash
Tonic Studios - Nuvo Crystal Drops
