This week at Crafts 4 Eternity, our recipe is pastel shades! Have you seen all the water coloring popping up? It is so very popular! I decided to try my hand at no-line water coloring so I stamped my little cupcake from Birthday Bash (super old Cornish Heritage Farm set by Kim Hughes) 3 times (HELLO MISTI... :D) - do you have YOUR MISTI tool? I stamped the image in MFT Kraft ink, masked it off and stamped two more times - once to the left, once to the right and went right to town water coloring with distress markers. I did the cupcakes and the lower portion first, then went on about life allowing it to dry. I came back a few days later and wanted to add the purple around everything....GAH...SOMEONE please tell me how to keep the other water coloring which you have previously done from bleeding - I mean, it is WATER color, so get it wet, it spreads. LOL I guess I'll have to try rubber cement or some type of masking fluid, any recommendations?
Anywho, I added the background and moved forward with the card. I added glossy accents to the icing and candles, then sprinkled the flames with rock crystals.
The layout is the week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #260. Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a great weekend!
