Birthday Cupcakes and Beads

So I really like the watercoloring….. in case you can’t tell yet…. I find it very fun and relaxing. I wish that I had had the courage to try this sooner! Today’s project is a birthday card! (Luckily, the receiver doesn’t do social media so I can post it while it’s still traveling through the mail to her!)

I started with the watercolor pencils and watercolor paper. I layered lots of color in one spot then used the aqua painters to streak the color further across the page. Again, don’t be afraid to leave white streaks or mix the colors. I think it makes the finished product more visually interesting. I set the page aside and let it dry overnight. Once dry, I cut frames out of the Rectangle Stitched dies.

The cupcakes are from the Hello Cupcake stamp set from Sale-A-Bration 2019. (I have an extra (used) one if you’re looking to purchase one.) These were stamped and then adhered to the watercolor frame.

To create the sliding beads, first use the foam adhesive to create a top and bottom for the beads to slide between. The seed beads are strung on white thread. The frame is glued on top to hide the underlying structure.

Happy crafting!
