myStampBOX: Happy Birthday
I decided to pull out some water and my Derwent Intense Pencils for this card. I used watercolor paper onto which I brushed some water. I then colored on the paper with the yellow pencil, blended it with a paint brush and water until I got the desired color, and continued on with the same technique with orange and red pencils. I stamped "Happy Birthday" from the myStampBOX Color Me - Sentiments set in the middle of each color. I carefully cut out the sentiment and matted it on black cardstock. I then colored in the sentiment with the same pencils using just a small amount of water on a paint brush to blend the colors.
