I got the idea for today's card from an article by Paula Whittaker in August 2012's Craft Stamper magazine.
The secret ingredient is highlighter pens!
You colour in pieces of card with the pens (for this card I used orange, yellow, and pink) and then go over it with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I kept the colouring quite random as I liked the effect it gave, almost like woodgrain. This was a happy accident after some dodgy colouring!
I then stamped on my much loved Clarity Alliums in Archival Black and finished it off with a little bow and "Happy Birthday".
