Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes

Hello friends.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time it is "Anything Goes" as long as it is for a birthday.

This card will be going to my great-grandson who has a birthday soon.
I used this cute MFT Space Explorer set and the matching dies and colored them with Promarkers and Copics.  I made the background with Ranger Distress Watercolor Card and SU Night of Navy ink.  I wet the paper and added water to the ink on a clear block and then painted the background.  I let it dry and went over it a second time. for variation.  I then added some thinned white paint splatters and a few dots with my white gel pen.  The mat is MFT Electric Red CS.  I did parts of the sentiment on the computer - "Hope Your" and "Is Out of This", and then stamped Birthday from MFT Adorable Elephants and World from the Space Explorer set.  I lightly inked around the edges with Electric Red to make them stand out a little better.  Birthday, World, the rocket and the cute Space Explorer are all mounted with foam tape.  I used a piece of white hemp cord to connect the rocket to the Space Explorer.

Now check out all the fabulous cards by the designers over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will be inspired to play along with us.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
