Funky Hand Inspiration

Hi everyone.

Its my turn to share inspiration over on the Funky Hand blog today.
Ive made a little card to share with you all.

Ive used the "Happy Birthday" doodle word as well as  the 

I am well know for loving all things vintage and distressed and I decided to show that, that style works real well, even with a fun and funky image.

 The backing paper already have little "bubbles" on it, but to accentuate them a bit more, and to really distress the papers, I stamped over the paper witha bubble stamp. I stamped using distress inks, and then sprayed with water.
It made the stamping "run" so i simply dried it with my heatgun.

This little butterfly is indeed a Funky Hand Image as well.
It is indeed from the "Flutterby Flowers" digital stamp pack.

I simply printed and cut out. Then gave it a good smudge of the same distress ink I used on the card, sprayed with water, and again dried with the heatgun till fully dry.
As the colour fully dried, it changed colour.

Finished my card with a few gems and Voila...

And that is it from me today. I hope you liked what Ive made.
Thank you for stopping by and for any comments left behind.
