This month's blog hop is all about inspiration - and this was the photo to be inspired by:
And this is what I came up with:
I decided to create my own background using the colours on the wall with Guidelines II, then sponged aroundbthe piece with Blush Blossom ink so soften it a bit. The cupcake was stamped on card and dsp then paper pieced, and I added some glitter to the icing - and topped it off with a cherry button. I layered the cupcake on a combination of die-cut shapes.The borders at the top and bottom were die-cut from two colours of cardstock and layered over the stamped background. I finished off with some stitched ribbon.
Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Birthday Basics, Everyday Treats, Guidelines II, Baby Button Bits
Ink: Blush Blossom, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Groovy Guava, Tangerine Tango, Cherry Cobler, black
Paper: Blush Blossom, Cherry Cobler, Whisper White, miscellaneous dsp
Dies: Mat Stack 1, limitless labels, banner borders
Accessories: Spring Moss ribbon, cherry button, stickles glitter
Thanks for stopping by!
