Crazy Cat and Color Burst Birthday Card

Yesterday was the 30th of March and it marked my wonderful daughter's 18th Birthday. WOW! I'm amazed that she is already 18 and will be leaving for college this fall. 
I had recently purchased the Ken Oliver Color Bursts and really wanted to break them out and use them on this card.

I used Ranger's watercolor paper for this background and simply spritzed the paper with water and then dropped each of the colors onto the wet paper. It spread out so wonderfully. 
I did spritz the paper a little more with the water once the color was on, just to get it spread more and more

I just love how the colors spread and blend into one another 

I stamped my crazy cat, the bday hat and balloon and colored them with copic markers and applied
For my word, I used one of Tim Holtz word dies with black cardstock
The inside says "birthday"

The result of this looks so complicated, like it could have taken awhile to make but it was super easy to do

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!
