Hip, Hip, Hooray! * MFT Birthday Project

Hi there, welcome to a new Birthday Project by My Favorite Things. This month topic is We Like to Move it, Move it! Which means, we would love to see interactive birthday projects. 

I don't make a lot of interactive cards but every time I do, I really enjoy it and wonder, why I don't make more often. This is a quite simple way for an interactive element. There's a lot of inspiration on the MFT YouTube channel where my fellow DT members show amazing ways to get some movement to their cards.
I started with the part I'm more comfortable with: stamping, coloring and die cutting the images. I stamped the two cute critters unto watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink and colored them with Faber Castell Watercolor Markers. I added some details with colored pencils and die cut the images using the coordinating dies. 

Next, I created my watercolor background. This is a quite simple and easy background to do. All I did was painting a little green at the bottom of my watercolor paper and some light blue to the upper part. Before the light blue color was dry, I dipped away some of it with a dry paper towel to get the look of soft clouds. After the panel was dry, I stamped some grass details and the little flower. After coloring the tiny flower, I started creating the interactive part of the card. 

I tried to write down the following steps for you (several times) but it I have to admit that it was quite hard for me to write down really good instructions. I felt like my tutorial started to get super confusing and as English is not my native language, I was missing the right words to make it easier to understand. I decided to skip this step and link to the card that inspired me for todays creation. There are also a lot of talented cardmakers out there with YouTube tutorials on interactive cards. I feel like seeing the instructions on a video is so much better than reading about it. If you have any questions, please, feel free to ask.

Here's the video that inspired me: MFT YouTube Channel: Interactive Vulcano Card
