CIC28 Jasmine's Garden
Welcome! - I hope everyone has been having a wonderful weekend so far. It's time for Hope Cupcake Inspiration Challenge and just get a good look at that YUMMY cupcake today. Isn't that just gorgeous! - I'm excited to play again today. I was sort of stumped at first when I saw this cupcake because I thought, What on earth am I going to use for inspiration. Then it hit me I had the perfect stamp from Annabelle Stamps called, My Garden It's one of the new (Singles) in the Annabelle line. I think Jasmine is just beautiful. She reminds me of a princess spending time in her royal flower garden dreaming of a handsome prince. I colored my image with (yes you guessed it, Prisma Color Pencils) and masked her then stenciled on the clouds and sponged in the grass. I also popped up a few of the flowers with foam tape and added some shimmer to the centers of all the flowers with various Spica Glitter Pens (to bad it's hard to see in a scan because it's really pretty in real life).
The paper I used is from Basic Grey's Lemonade line. I think it's really cheery and a pretty good match to the colors of the inspiration cupcake. I added some of those divine "Sprinkles" above my punched border. Then I tied on some Cream Grosgrain ribbon. The sentiment is part of another Annabelle set, (Swirl Tree) and the wonderful thing about clear stamps is that you can maneuver them like I did and position the words any way you want as this stamp is actually in a straight line but I masked it off and stamped the (of you) part underneath.
Be sure to stop by all the Sweetie's Blogs for further inspiration and give this challenge a try yourself. Post your entry using the Mr. Linky features. It's really a lot of fun and challenges you as a stamper to see things in new and different ways so why not give it a try and see how you are inspired.
