I pre-punched circles of watercolour paper & we stamped the cake image with black staz-on. Then we coloured the image with four of the 2011-13 In-Colours & added a little dazzling diamonds to finish.
After that, the rest of the card came together with simple layering, including some yummy SAB paper. Just about everyone there was new to stamping and/or watercolouring, but I was really impressed with how well they did.
Fast forward a week after the workshop. I needed two birthday cards for Cara's friends & no time! Thankfully, a spare workshop kit gave me card one. Then, I decided to make the same card in a different colour combo. Cara requested 'purple' for the second card, but mono-chromatic wasn't working for me, so I went out of the box (for me) & settled on elegant eggplant (love) & daffodil delight (generally not so love, but hey, they're complementary colours!). Anyway here's the finished card, complete with extra bling.You can decide for yourself whether it works! Cara thought it was cool, so that was good enough for me!...& the colours looked better IRL.
Easy Events Tip! - Use the clear mount version of the set & separate the sentiment from the image for even more flexibility to swap sentiments & easy inking. If you want to use them together, simply place on the same clear block.
I can't show you my demo project, as didn't take a pic! Until then, thanks for visiting & please leave a comment if you have any questions about anything.
