For a Grown Son's Birthday

Just a quick post to share this card I made for my son's birthday last month.  I taped the kraft cardstock card to the work surface with some painters tape and then sprinkled the card with the blue and violet Brushos.  I sprintzed water over the top and created this fabulous background.  If I had to do it again, I'd add a kraft cardstock piece that was watercolored because you can see color bled through to the other side.  Son didn't care though!  I then ran the card through my printer and put this sentiment in block letters over the top.  The printing didn't stand out so I brushed on some black molding paste with a paint brush.  I'm pleased it turned out and my son thought it was a bit funny.  Hit that note just right!


  1. I love this bold and beautiful card. I really want to buy Brushos. I love the results and your card is fabulous!

  2. Great card and love that background!


Thank you so much for your kind words. Isn't it fun to encourage one another, even from a distance?
