Hoping your Birthday is a Blast

For my card today I have used Blast 
from Mo's Digital Pencil. There is a girl version of this image too called Blast G. Both of these images are perfect for summer.

When I printed this little guy I added two extra water cannon cut from the original image.  I wanted it to look like there were other players all "having a blast". The images are coloured with Copics.   In addition to stencilling a sunburst in the background I inked some blue through a splatter stencil and inked over the blue with Versamark clear ink before adding the holographic embossing powder over the top.  That gave my splatters a wet look just right to mimic water bursting out - more visible in the second photo.   The sentiment is by Simon Says Stamp and inside, I used a sentiment from Mo' Manning which comes with the image. 

You have until 0900 GMT on Wednesday 4 August to link up your projects with our  "Anything Mo's" theme at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge.  A new challenge will start on Saturday.

The sunburst makes a great background and a good idea to add extra water canons.
