Happy Birthday with Old Car Card and Rainbow Umbrella Card

 I still have  My Birthday Linky can click here  to go to the main post :) I would be so happy if you like to join with me :)


Quick post before 00:00 in Germany :)

I got my new stamp from Shery at Stamplorations (as I won on this challenge on Stamplorations Blog) many thanks dear Shery....the stamp arrive fast and all is complete :) love to use it...

This is the first debut for this Old Car stamp, I used again Stamplorations Bi-Weekly Sketch Challenge #31
and I combine with the April challenge on Stamplorations blog: Stamps and Numbers. Here is what I made:

 I stamped the number, masking the white area and sponging blue Distress Ink and then I try to stamped the Car on that paper but the result is so bad...(maybe because the texture there on the paper) also I stamped again on a plain paper and colored with two blue copic markers.

The HAPPY BIRTHDAY DIE CUT/CUT OUT I have got from Pia, it was my birthday goodies....Pia, once more many many thanks my sweet blogland friend, you made my birthday this year meaningfull ;)...(grinz)

I see this picture from The House That Stamps Built (Photo Inspiration Challenge),


and can not stand to try my new Watercolor Masking Fluid, I have read at Sandie Blog, London Days. and I search in Google and decided to buy this liquid. I stamped and masked the image from Create a Smile:

Using this thin bamboo I try to add the watercolor masking fluid to mimic the raindrops (be careful its stink and if you sensitive with something so stink this liquid is really stink :) )

Colored with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor set:

Then using my nailfinger I clean the liquid on that paper. Here is the card finished, please don´t laugh that the water rain drop looks so BIG not so smooth like on the Photo Inspiration, it is FAR FROM PERFECT :), I am newbie using this watercolor masking fluid :) (grinz)

The sentiment also from the same set :)
