Crazy for Cupcakes Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone,

It’s time for yet another sketch Challenge from Stamping 411…Selene has come up with yet another wonderful sketch for us to play along with.

Here is the sketch:


…and my interpretation…..

Sketch 141 001     

I showcased the Crazy for Cupcakes set and colored with my Watercolor Crayons and an Aqua Painter.

The Regal Rose Card Stock was cut at 4 1/2 x 11 and folded in half. That is the card base. I ran it through my Big Shot with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder but not all the way. I wanted to leave some blank for my sentiment.

the striped strip is 1 x 4 and stamped with Regal Rose with my Solid Stripes Stamp. My mat layer is Chocolate Chip and cut at 2 7/8 x 3 5/8 and the image piece is 2 3/4 x 3 1/2

I stamped the image in Chocolate Chip and colored. I then added some Crystal Effects tot he Cupcake Stand and the Balloons to give a bit of shine to. The Balloon strings we drawn free hand with my markers using the fine tip. Oh! Lets not forget the cherries they are shiny too as I added just a bit of Crystal effects to them too.

That’s it for today. I hope that you will go on over to……..Stamping 411 and see what the other Operators have done and also play along.

I appreciate you stopping by and hope you have a …..

Stampinglee Good Day!
