Nature themed birthday

Then stamped Rubberneckers stamps “watercolor branch” with just water, then sprinkled Ken Oliver’s Color Burst powders in and added water on stamp again. The base is done with Stampscapes “grass texture”,water and Color Burst. Greeting is from Simon Says Stamp Birthday Balloons set
