Celebrate by Sherry Eckblad

Hello Ai Fans! Sherry here today sharing a card that I created using the Birthday Couple stamp and my watercolor paints.


I stamped the birthday couple image on a 4x4 piece of watercolor paper using versamark ink and then added black zing embossing powder. 

Next I used my watercolor paints and began adding color to the image. I started with the light colors and let them dry and then added the darker colors, always making sure to let each color dry before proceeding to the next.

Once I was done coloring the image I stamped the Celebrate stamp in the bottom left hand corner and then added foam adhesive to the backside. I then placed that onto my A2 top folding card. The bottom looked a little empty to me so I added some seam binding ribbon that I had made.

Thanks for stopping by!
