So now, onto my card! For today's Blog Hop I created a simple, one layer birthday card. I started by using stripes from Watercolor Stripes Stencil and masking technique to create layers of my birthday cake. I simply used a sponge dauber over the stencil with Baby Pink and Yellow Ochre Crisp Dye Inks. Next, I stamped flowers from Ditsy Print Stamp Set on top of the cake and used Altenew Artist Markers Set A to colour the images in.

happy birthday

As a final step I added some details with black marker and stamped my sentiment from Birthday Builder Stamp Set.

happy birthday

That's it for me.  Your next stop on the hop is the amazing Isha Gupta!
