Happy Cake Day

Hello there!

Just a quick post to share with you and luckily it follows a few challenges...

Seize the Birthday...add a tag

and CAS on Sunday...balloons
CAS on Sunday
I was just playing around with the watercoloring technique...something I am not good at!!! I think the lighter the hand strokes the nicer the color blending is. I have a very heavy hand and just can't get it right...or to my liking!
I used a bunch of distress inks in shades mustard seed, picked raspberry, spiced marmalade and peacock feathers. I used the stamp set Cake Day from The Alley Way Stamps and stamped the images with black ink from Memento onto watercolored cardstock. I added some white accents with a gel pen and scattered some sequins from Little Things from Lucy's Card Shop. 
I die cut the back panel with Mama Elephants stitched scalloped rectangle die.  The tag die is from Avery Elle. The cord and mini clothespin are from Michaels.

Thanks for taking a peek!
