Birthday Cards

I needed some cards for March birthdays.

For these first two cards I stamped in versa mark ink and coloured the backgrounds with various shades of pan pastels.  I used my Hero Arts birthday surprise stamp on all three of the cards.  Top one is stamped in picket fence distress stain as is the background on the second.

I stamped this image in two colours of distress stain as well as the birthday surprise.  I also went around the edges of the craft paper with stain too and curled and ripped the edges.  I coloured the image background with pan pastels and tore the excess off leaving the raw white of the card showing.
