Happy Birthday with Kobi...Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #411~Watercolour

Hello,

Welcome to Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #411, where we're enticing you with this lovely assortment of 'water-colour' delights for this week's theme: Watercolour.


This week's lucky water-colour-winner will receive a $15 gift certificate (+free shipping within the USA) from out sponsor Inspired by Stamping.


Bet you can guess my initial response to this challenge...yep! Fear, anxiety, dread...however, I overcame 'some' of that when my recent win from Studio Katia (who, by the way, is located in my home city of Edmonton!) arrived this week. So thrilled and honoured to receive such a wonderful prize package that included stamps AND dies! Please welcome the debut of the newest member of my collection:  Kobi, the Birthday Bear.  Isn't he A-DOR-A-BLE???


Kobi, his cake, assortment of gifts, the wee bee (ACK!) and balloon were water-coloured with a combination of Tombow markers and distress inks.  The background stenciling, in real life, is light green (Twisted Citron), but it shows rather 'brown' here. I know my water-colouring doesn't do him justice; I tried, though! I really did!  I have more Kobi's stamped and we're going to do some exploring with pencils to see how that goes. Stay tuned...Kobi will be back...again and again *grin*

THANK YOU, Katia, for the gift of Kobi! He will receive plenty of TLC!

Please head over to Cupcake Inspirations to see my team-mates' watercolour wonders...
you'll be dazzled!
