Stack o' Cupcakes


Dscn4436_2I made this card for a special someone who had a birthday last week.  I thought the bird's-eye view was kind of fun.  That IS Stickles all over the icing of the cupcakes. I just HAD to add some glitter!! :)  I water-colored the image using my Aqua Painter and re-inkers.  I used that silver/gold pen that SU! used to have - sorry, I can't remember what it's called - that functions like a paint pen to add some shine to the cupcake stand.  The paper is from the Bella Rose (Pink Pirouette strips) and Baja Breeze Patterns DSP packs.  The sentiment is from Upsy Daisy - which I can't wait to use!! I'm using it for a swap card for one of the FOUR new catty swaps I'm in.  You'll get to see those eventually, after the swap groups have seen them.

Stamps:  Crazy for Cupcakes, Upsy Daisy
Paper:  Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White CS, Bella Rose and Baja Breeze Prints DSP
Ink:  Basic Black, Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze and Riding Hood Red Classic Inks
Accessories:  Scallop and Plain Oval Nestabilites, Big Shot, Stickles, Silver pen, Baja Breeze 1" Double-Stitched Grosgrain ribbon
