Picture Perfect Birthday Card

Hey peaches! I'm going to make this short and sweet. I just realized that I haven't done any watercoloring in a while! I know! For those who are regular followers, you know that's totally not like me. I’m not even sure why. Perhaps I’ve been occupied by all of the new yummy ink colors and stamps or maybe I’ve been enjoying other techniques. In any event, I’m happy to report that I’m back with a watercolor wonder to share. 


Today, I’m featuring the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set and the Springtime Impressions Thinlits. I was inspired by these lovely water colors and flowers (picture below). I love the look of the soft colors and anything rainbow makes me happy.

I began by taking a panel of Watercolor Paper and created a rainbow background with my inks. I used Bermuda Bay, Flirty Flamingo (returning In Color), and the brand new Pineapple Punch Inks. I used my Aqua Painter to create a rainbow watercolor washed background and made sure to mix colors in between, Bermuda mixed with Pineapple, Pineapple mixed with Flamingo, etc. I put that aside to dry. While that was drying, I die cut out some flowers, using the Springtime Dies from Watercolor Paper.  Then I used the same ink colors to color my flowers in a messy fashion. When the watercoloring was all dry, I adhered the flowers to my background and added my sentiment. That finished off my card for today. Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you next post!
