Tuesday Trigger - Happy Birthday

Happy Saturday to you! Hope you have something fun planned.  I was inspired to play along with the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger Challenge. I haven't played in a while, but I thought the inspiration photo was awesome and an idea immediately popped into my head:

(Scroll down a bit to see the inspiration picture first............I'll wait..............)   OK - so the card is a bit 'brighter' than the inspiration but I really like it!

So for the background.........I cut down my watercolor paper to size and then heavily spritzed it with green and teal Dylusion inks.  I dried it a bit and then spritzed more and then to get a bit of floral on it, I took my Hero Arts Large Floral Background stamp (below) and heavily sprayed it with water. (The Dylusions react with water).  Then I stamped it down and held it there for a bit. I was able to get subtle outlines of the flowers.

I stamped a There She Goes butterfly and colored it in with Distress Markers, added some gold acrylic accents (her belt) for the butterfly's flight leading to a PTI sentiment.  I added the wonky ribbon to reflect the layers on the dresses neck.

Here's the Tuesday Trigger:

And....stay tuned because I was able to get a second generation impression of that large floral background....and it's cool!!!!!!

Thanks for your visit!
