Sunshiny Birthday

I originally wanted to make this an A2 card with a "lazy river" for the girl to float down, but in the end I cut it to a square because I liked the proportions better. The water is made with alcohol inks which are great for a liquid look.

I just love this sweet girl and her tropical coconut drink!

Materials used for this project:
MFT Drink Up the Sunshine stamps and dies
MFT Stitched Snow Drifts die (I used the non-stitched side)
Versafine ink pad in Black Onyx
Memento ink pad in Tuxedo Black
Alcohol inks in Laguna, Mermaid and Glacier
Distress Oxide ink pads in Antique Linen and Vintage Photo
Raw sienna watercolor paint (for the brown splatters)
Copic markers and colored pencils:
    Greens - YG00, YG03, YG17, Prismacolor Indigo
    Browns - E00, E30, E31, E35, E37, E59, Polychromos Brown Ochre and Burnt Umber
    Pinks - RV10, RV13, RV14, Polychromos Magenta
    Skin - E000, E11, E13, BV00, Polychromos Cinnamon
