Happy Birthday!

Welcome to the birth of a new year...2015 to be precise! In honor of that, we've decided that our monthly challenge for January will be Birthday Wishes. We'd love for you to play along with us, and link your creations to the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of this post, or on the Dream It Up! blog, for a chance to win the stencil of your choice...and remember, using Dreamweaver products gets you bonus points towards an extra stencil!

Here's my birthday wish for this week:

.

In honor of the merger of Dreamweaver Stencils into the Stampendous company, I used the beautiful fuchsia stamp from Stampendous and LS1010 Sm Happy Birthday from Dreamweaver Stencils. 
I used water base markers to color the fuchsia stamp, spritzed it with a fine mist of water, and stamped it on watercolor paper. Using a small paintbrush and water, I moved the color off the lines, picking up more color from my craft mat as needed. After that had dried a little, I cleaned the stamp, re-inked it with Archival Jet Black, and over stamped the colored image to add back the detail. The Happy Birthday stencil was taped in the lower corner and paste embossed with Matte Black Embossing Paste. A beautiful bow from May Arts finished it off!

Of course, more birthday inspirations coming your way from our "B" team:

Happy Creating,
