Gerbera Daisy Birthday with Distress Oxide Smooshing

Three or four weeks ago, I had my Distress Oxide ink pads out to try and watercolor with them. Before I put them away, I made this background by smooshing the pads onto a sheet of plastic, spritzing a little water, and dipping a piece of watercolor paper into the puddle. “Spray, smoosh some more, repeat” until I liked the saturation.

After it dried, I heat embossed the gerbera daisies onto the background.

This card is larger than my usual cards (A6 – 4.675 x 6.25 inches).
