Raining Cupcakes


Here's a card that I actually did around the turn of the year, so a few months ago, for a friend's birthday. It also has a New Year's bit, because that holiday had just passed when I was making it. I got to use one of my favorite - by design - papers here, produced by Hanko designs. I happened to have the same design in three different color schemes, so I carefully cut out and arranged three pieces so they would connect perfectly to form a picture. They make up the background for the front image. The image itself is a stamp by House-Mouse, colored with Copic markers. :)

My friend who this card was for bakes awesome cakes, so I thought it would be fitting to put some cupcakes on the inside. :) I stamped some out in different ColorBox chalk inks, masked them and sprayed the paper with two kinds of spray. One was the Tattered Angels in pashmina. The other I made myself by mixing some regular red and blue acrylic paint with water in a little spray bottle I got at the drug store. I think it came out as a nice background. :)

Inside, I put a mini card with a snowman for the New Year. I thought I'd change the color I wrote in, too. I love the abundance of colors that Sakura gel pens come in, and I usually theme the color according to the surroundings. :)

That is all for now. Thank you for visiting! :)
