A sweet little birthday card. Ages ago Therese from Lost in Paper did this wonderful card where she stamps these sweet little ballerina's in pink then a very soft watercolour wash. Now if you click on the link you will see a totally different look to what I have done as I don't know the word light, I try I really really do but my hand just laughs at me and does what it wants so what you see is my version of light watercolouring.
But do go check out Therese's blog after you have finished here because she has an amazing talent that covers so many areas in card making and I love watching her videos and checking out her cards for ideas and just to see how easy she can make it all look.
Now back to mine.I don't have the stamp so first I had to work out how to change the black line work to pink line work and that only took me approx 6 hours on and off during the day and hopefully I wrote it down somewhere cause as Im sitting here typing this I'm thinking "now how did I do this??"
Okay so I changed the line work to pink and a few other colours just for interest then I printed onto watercolour paper through my laser printer that wasn't keen on the thickness of my watercolour paper. and threw a bit of a fit.
I have since checked at Officeworks and they will give my watercolour paper a go down there and if it goes through their machine ok they will print up down there so thats good to know.
Anyway I then used very sparingly my Zigs Skintone, Pink
Yellow and Brown. a wee bit of Grey for shadow.
I added to a card front, a strip of glitter washi top and bottom, a couple of gems and a piece of vellum with a gold foil 'Happy Birthday' and watercolour wash.
So easy to do with the light washes that I got half a dozen cards painted so will make great cards for my granddaughters friends as they are all into dancing.
Thanks so much for coming to have a look and I hope you come again soon.
