For the challenge this week, at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our theme is "We've Got Your Numbers". I created a mixed media birthday card with several numbers on it using Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Crate on the background and Tim Holtz Alpha Parts Numeric as the sentiment.

To start this project, I made a 4.25" X 5.5" white card base and sew a piece of watercolor paper which was cut .125" smaller on each side on the card base.  The background of the watercolor paper was stenciled using Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Cargo and Distress Spray Stains. Then I applied watercolors on the stenciled background with random warm colors.

I also made some texture with Modeling Paste and the Layering Stencil Bubble. The butterfly was colored with Distress Paint, and the alpha part was covered with Gesso first then Distress Paints.

Some sentiment and images were added using Tim Holtz Rubs-on and stickers. I distressed the edges of the card with Simon Says Stamp blue and black Ink pads as the final touch. 

I truly hope you like this card and got inspired to create with us. Happy crafting!
