Birthday Bakery Watercolouring

Dear Everyone

I was inspired to do some watercolouring for some Birthday cards that I was making for some fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators. I know "Birthday Bakery" is a retired set but it is so much fun to play with.

I got inspiration for the layout of the card from the
Utah Divas International Sketch Challenge #179 and the colours from Colour Q Challenge #127 . The colours are Certainly Celery, Calyspso Coral, Blushing Bride & Chocolate Chip. When I read those colours on the challenge blog....I immediately saw cake! :)

I enjoyed making the first card so much, I made a few of them, and then I made a variation on it and did a card for a colleague at work who wanted a card for her sister-in-law. She mentioned 'purples'....so I did Birthday Bakery in Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum, Concord Crush, Bravo Burgundy and Crumb Cake! I coloured the glimmer paper in Wisteria Wonder just to tie it all in.
Hope you enjoy the cards....watercolouring really is AWESOME! If you would like to order any of the supplies I used to make these cards, just give me a call or email me. Remember there are still a couple of weeks left of Sale-A-Bration so if your order is $100 or more, you will earn free stamps! :)
