combined with and her sketch to make this card. I used acrylic paints for the background of the paper..creating kind of an abstract look..then I stamped 4 cupcakes, and cut them out, painting the layers with a soft blue water colour paint, and then added stickles cherries on top. The Happy Birthday sentiment was a dollar studio G set..not sure which ****Everyone has been asking how I created the background..its a simple technique I learned from my mom the artist…using acrylic paints (I use making memories), and a paintbrush that is not moistened, you can get kind of a straw look with the paint and the dry fibers of the brush…I used 2 colours to create my background here**** šŸ™‚ Thanks for the sweet comments!
