Acrylic paints: PaperArtsy Fresco Finish London Bus, Tangerine Twist, Zesty Zing; Pebeo Studio Titanium White
Liquitex Pouring Medium
Silicone oil (optional)
Plastic cups: 2cl, 200ml
Rubbing alcohol
Tin tray
Die, Lawn Fawn Happy Birthday Line Border

1. Pour the paints into separate small cups, add the same amount of pouring medium, then a drop or two of water if needed. Stir well but mix slowly to minimise air bubbles. Add silicone oil if desired. Pierce several skewers through a tin tray and balance a sheet of white card on top.

2. Spread the white base paint all over the white card. Pour a few colours into the centre of the card, then pour some more white paint around it to help it flow. Blow into the paint to spread it and create the desired design. You can blow with your mouth, a straw or spritzer tool. Lightly mist the surface with rubbing alcohol and allow it to dry naturally.

3. Once dry, cut the card to 15cm square and matt onto black card. Die cut ‘Happy birthday’ from black and adhere onto the greeting. Wrap black and white baker’s twine around the panel, then fix onto the blank with 3D foam pads. Embellish with a few sequins.
