Little Red Wagon - Happy Birthday Canada

I am so happy to be joining the The Little Red Wagon Girlfriends!  This week Carolyn wants us to use red and white to celebrate Canada's birthday.  My card was inspired by the friendship the US has with our wonderful neighbor to the North.

I chose to dust off some very old Hero Arts stamps.  This is a set from 2005 (told you they were dusty) called Big and Bold.  I did some smooshing and spattering of watercolor on Ranger white watercolor paper.  'Happy' was stamped in VersaFine Satin Red.  I added some Perler Bead 'enamel dots' and a simple sentiment on the inside. 

I sure hope you join this week, can't wait to see what you create.


Stamps:  Hero Arts Big and Bold, Winnie and Walter sentiment
Ink:  VersaFine Satin Red
Paper:  Ranger Watercolor paper, Bazzil cardstock
Accessories:  Hobby Lobby watercolors, Enamel dots (perler beads)


  1. Love the CAS design Brenda and the water colour background looks fantastic.

  2. Wonderful card! And, if you use your imagination a bit, the smooshing and splattering kinda looks like a map of Canada. :-) Nice to have you on the team.

  3. Great card, Brenda! I love the splattering effect! Welcome to the team :)
