Cupcake Inspiration Challenge (CIC) and I've missed it. Life has just been super busy this summer but I'm happy to say I'm back today with a card for the challenge. Just look at that wonderful cupcake, who wouldn't be inspired by how lovely and refreshing it looks (not to mention yummy)!
I knew right away what stamp I wanted to use for this challenge. It's been in my stash for awhile and I've used it once or twice but I just had to dust it off again so without further ado here is my card.
I stamped the cat and daisies - Third Coast Rubber Stamps
on Kraft (now known as Crumb Cake) cs with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Prisma Color pencils. I highlighted the Daisy centers with Lemonade Glitter. Then I sponged on some Tempting Turquoise ink and then took my cloud template and lightly sponged some White craft ink around in a sort of random pattern as I really didn't want it to look like clouds but rather a misty like look (do you think it worked?) - I added some pretty white half pearls.
The card base is Tempting Turquoise layered with Whisper White, DP by Cosmo Cricket. I added a punched layer of Tempting Turquoise and Old Olive that was embossed with the Swiss Dot Embossing folder. The cat was mounted over a circle of Garden Green. I left off a sentiment and figured one could be put on the inside later on.
Hope you'll give this challenge a try. It's alot of fun.
