We have been having fun with the Amazing Life stamp set (148750) . The one is similar to the first, but the sentiment is just tooo funny!! Think about that for a minute. Life is to short to say no to Cake!! The watercolor technique here is just the aqua painter (103954) filled with regular water and a little re-inker. Just a reminder the paper must be completely dry when you go to stamp. COMPLETELY! We have mixed ribbon styles before, this is to help pull all the colors together and not be too much. I hope this is a birthday card you can see using and making!! Have a Great Day getting Crafty!!
