Happy Birthday Calvin!

A quick post this morning before we head out on a 2-week vacation to Arizona! I tried a technique I saw on the 'CAS Mix Up' blog...using plastic wrap with any wet medium. I used Prang watercolor paints, dropped dots of watery paint of different colors onto plastic wrap then laid white cardstock over it and rolled it with a rolling pin. That paper is what I used for this card, but I also took the plastic wrap that still had the paint on it and put that on another sheet of paper and got a different watercolor background! I like both of them...this one is a bit brighter and seemed more appropriate for my grandson's b-day card.



Since our plane leaves in a couple hours and I'm kinda in a hurry, no list of ingredients!

Very cute! We're so blessed that you joined us with your wonderful art last Challenge. We would like to invite you to link with us again in our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving some inspiration from the Word of God in John 4:14 n which Jesus said, "But whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a fount of water springing up to eternal life." Have a wonderful and blessed week.
