Water Colour Wednesday - Best Birthday

Hi Everybody,

Todays clean and simple card is using  the  Best Birthday  matching stamp and die set from Clearly Besotted

You don't need to buy the dies to create this card because you can simply fussy cut around the image ... but I have to buy both if they are available ... don't ask me why !!

So to make this card I stamped the two outside characters directly onto my base card and stamped the central one onto another piece 

I water coloured them all in and then die cut the piglet out and added it on foam pads to the centre position on my card

The sentiment and balloon strings are from the same stamp set and the only extras on the card are some silver sequins that I have dotted around

They just don't look silver in the photograph .
 I inked around the edges of the card and matted it onto some grey before layering it onto the white base

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  5. very nice card, Christina, tell me what paper do you paint on? Is it water colour paper? I was wondering as I find this makes my card very thick and heavy. Should I use a different paper? Please let me know thanks

  11. What a cute card Christina. Thanks so much for sharing it with us. Have a wonderful day.

  12. Hi Christina,
    I LOVE THIS!!! The characers are so cute and I love all the sentiments that come with the stamps. I know exactly what you mean...if there's a matching stamp and die set I feel the need to have both as well, so guess what I've just put on my Clearly Besotted wish list lol.
