Watercolour CupcakeToday I was short on time, but thanks to my favourite stamp set and punch I was not short of ideas. My card was super fast to make and is really simple but its my favourite card yet with the Sketched Birthday set.
I made an adorable 4"x4" card in Whisper White then used the Extra Large Circle Punch to cut out a piece of the amazing Glimmer Paper. I stamped Happy Birthday in Coastal Cabana Used the Banner Punch on either end to make the banner and inked the edges.
Then I used a technique called Watercolour. On Whisper White I stamped the Happy Birthday Cupcake stamp using Stazon Black ink. This ink is different to normal Stampin up! ink as it is solvent based rather then water based so it doesn't run when we add the water part of watercolouring! Next I coloured in the design using the Coastal Cabana and the Strawberry Slush ink and a Blender Pen. Stampin Up! also do watercolour pens, however I love the blender pens for speed and easy cleanup! (BTW they come in a set of three, and you really only need 1 pen so they make really good presents!) I will share a tutorial on how to Watercolour using the pens soon. For those of you who are cautious to try it, I was completely blown away by how easy it is to do! The last thing I did was cut out the water coloured image using the 1 3/4" Scalloped Circle Punch and then I used Stampin Dimensionals to stick all the elements down!
Less then 5 minutes, and a new technique in the bag! who doesn't love a Tuesday tutorial?
See you Soon
