Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Happy Birthday To You!

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a birthday project. I saw this cupcake image (Hoppy Wishes) the other day while we were indexing, and thought it would be a fun one to use, since Easter's on its way...

I had my Brusho palette out for yesterday's project, so I watercolored the 2 images at the same time while I was watching I Love Lucy. The background here was from my filed stash - I think this was a piece of cardstock I used to catch acrylic paint that went off the edge of other projects. It had a lot of similar colors on it, and it worked just perfectly!

Stamps I used: Hoppy Wishes, Life Stuff clear set
