Big On Birthdays

Hello again,

These cards were inspired by one of my ladies asking about colouring and blending colours on stamped images, then showing her water colouring backgrounds. It's not something I do very often so thought it was time to play with this method. I was happy with the results, so must do this more often.



For the top card, I used Shimmery White card (#121717) and the bottom card I used Watercolour Paper (#122959) to do the watercolouring. Both these types of cardstock are ideal when watercolouring. I used an Aqua Painter (#103954) to apply the ink to the card. Once you are happy with the colouring of the background, ensure it is dry before stamping. I dried it using the Heat Tool (#129056). The ink used was Pacific Point (#126951) for the top card and Bermuda Bay (#131171) for the other. The stamp set used is Big On Birthdays (#p142877) for the sentiment and flowers. I used Pacific Point card (#116202) with the Shimmery White card, and Very Vanilla (#106550) and Bermuda Bay (#131286) were used with the Watercolour Paper.

Till next time,

Happy Stamping!
