Watercolour Birthday

If you're looking for my Tiddly Inks card for challenge #154 - Anything Goes, please scroll down, it's the next post!
If you're here to look at this card, or anything else, welcome! I'm still very much in a watercolouring phase. I think it's a technique I won't ever grow out of. I just love the look. If you have seen my previous watercolour card, you will know that I am an absolute beginner, and have only tried it on a few cards, so bear with me on this journey! I am loving how it turned out on this card though. I mixed a few blues and greens together and then splattered the same colours with a paint brush over the top, but after it dried. I actually then used white embossing paste and a stencil to add a bit more texture. I used two layers of lace around the bottom and added some dazzling diamonds to the cupcake.
