A Bevy of Birthday Best Wishes

abstract watercolor happy birthday card

I have a number of special February birthdays, so I had fun making a bevy of birthday cards to send out to family and friends.  This first one above is my fave (and it is already on its way to a special cousin whose birthday is Monday!).  I love the combination of purple, turquoise and yellow, and I used texturizing paste on the watercolor paper before painting to add some fun drama and dimension.

The Paper Players Challenge (PP280) this week is a Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge, so I chose, the diagonal of Purple, Pink, and Yellow which I did in Brusho Watercolor after embossing the coneflower silhouettes on these two cards – one in black and one in white.

Some of you may recognize this card below.  I had made this random abstract watercolor a while back, so I topped it off with this fun  Happy Birthday Die Cut I cut out in several colors.

For this last one, I splashed some fun green-gold olive and burnt umber watercolor paint and then spritzed it all with some gold glimmer mist.

Wishing all February birthday friends and family the best of birthdays!

Cheers & Hugs,
