Online Card Classes - Stretch Your Stamps 2 - Day 1 - Happy Birthday

Hello Friends,
Today I have joined the Online Card Classes - Stretch Your Stamps 2.  This is my version of a card that I loved from Shari Carroll's Demonstration on Day 1 using a Reverse Background Stamp. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Stamp Pads, Antique Photo, Evergreen Bough, Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive on Tim Holtz Watercolour card. The stamping is second generation and so soft and pretty.   I cut my piece into 1" Squares and mounted them with Dimesnionals.  The Happy Die cut and Birthday Stamp is from WPlus 9's Whole Lotta Happy Stamp Set.  I used the left over stamped squares on the inside of my card.
This is the result of my first stamping off for these two pieces and it was my third attempt, not quite enough water on the left hand side and the colour is a lot more vibrant.  There is a fine line between success and being okay and a lot of experimenting in between.  I enjoyed the process!! 

Thanks for dropping by today.
