Happy Birthday


Melissa Phillips is up at PTI's MIM this week.
She is challenging us to use our colored pencils on kraft,
or some other darker card stock.
Melissa always wows. She's a master with every technique,
and her cards this week were filled with subtle layers and stamping textures.


So, of course, I had to try stamping layers with my colored 
cupcake from Bakers Dozen.
Once I embossed the frame and cupcake in white, I masked it, and stamped 
BB: Gingham all around it.
It was so much fun coloring it in! Lots of blending, all one layer.
Background card stock stamped with BB: Venice and Fine Linen ink.
I've done this technique before, and love the richness
 it gives the images, once colored.
I used Prisma Watercolor Pencils
