I used the Easy Events birthday stamp to create a brightly colored card. I decided to start with the color yellow and went from there. I only have a few color choices due to only having the starter kit, so I used my ink pads as watercolors to color in the cupcake. I thought I'd be making the cupcake paper red, but when I mixed some water with the ink, I got a pink. So, I chose pink accents. Luckily, I had some pink papers and pink designer paper that also came in the starter kit. I don't have many colors or stamps, but I placed another order so I will have a wider array of colors. I love both the design and color aspect of stamping. I guess they go hand-in-hand, don't they?
