~Blog Party and a Swimmy Head~






The theme this month for the Waltzingmouse Blog party is birthdays!




I created a funky birthday card here, using the awesome elements from Teeny Trees.





I love the tree elements~I off-stamped for light "veins"~almost like a crackle effect.


The splotches are my favorite to play with also.



My colors were inspired by 







I pulled out my DCWV Naturals Stack,potters clay,london fog and dandelion mementos.


My favorite technique was used on this card...making my own designer paper  with random elements!


I love it, it makes my head all swimmy. ;)



I love to staple my card together also.






What's your favorite technique?



Supplies:


Stamps: Waltzingmouse Teeny Trees
Ink: Tsukineko Memento ink potters clay,dandelion,london fog
Paper: DCWV Naturals stack,Georgia Pacific white
Other:Tim Holts Distress tool,stapler
