Cuppacakeabella


This card was a real pest to make! My adhesive went everywhere, I was able to get it off the card but not the SU taffeta ribbon :( I'm a horrible "watercolorist" so please be gentle on me-I promise I am working on it lol. For the icing on the cupcake I used pale plum and perfect plum, the cupcake wrapper is close to cocoa. The bella's dress is certainly celery and night of navy. For the shadowing I used sage shadow. The card base is perfect plum and the accent paper is Enchate.

Watercoloring is my least favorite technique....because I'm not very good at it:) I need to do it more so I get more practice! I am so wanting the bella stamp, too! Great job........inspires me to keep working and maybe I'll learn to love watercoloring!
