Reminder of the February Release at ODBD

 The designers at Our Daily Bread Designs are taking a look back at this month's new release! I chose the new Happy Birthday die
set to feature on my card.  Using Peacock Feathers and Peeled Paint distress inks, I wet the watercolor cardstock then picked up the two colors from acrylic blocks and applied colors to the paper with a brush until I got a blend I liked.  After it was dry, I tapped a wet brush over the BG to let water droplets create a "bleached" effect.  I thought the sentiment would have more of a pop by shadowing a black layer behind it plus it adds dimension.  I used a white gel pen to add stripes and dots to the balloons and the tiny stars are from ODBD Stars die set.

You'll want to see more inspiring projects by the rest of the design team, so head over to the ODBD on their links below.
