This week we are sponsored by Digi Darla
Rachel has chosen the theme of Sweet Treats for the challenge, so here is what I came up with using Digi Darlas Glorious Cupcakes
I started off by using cosmic shimmer dries clear glue to trace the shape of the cake stand and then added silver gilding foil to it to give a metallic finish. Once this was dry I coloured the cupcakes just using the palest pastel colours from among my collection of Promarkers and Spectrum Noir pens to give a pretty pastel candy coloured finish. The cakes were then decorated using liquid pearls or iridescent stickles to give a bit of sparkle.
I used the base plate for one of my Marianne oval frames dies to cut the image out and then added pink liquid pearls around the edge of the shape.
The background papers are from a My Craft Studio Vintage Charm and worked so well with the theme. The bunting was from another MCS CD - Pastel Preludes and is actually full size Bunting that I have shrunk down and added the letters to before printing off. Before attaching the smaller panel of backing paper to the card I wrapped it in organza ribbon and tied a bow then added a double bow of the same ribbon I had used on the bunting, before adding the cupcake button and pearls to the centre.
The other cupcake I made using Martha Stewart modelling clay and a silicone mould. This clay is paper based and air dries in 24 hours but it is so light it is great for adding embellishments without increasing weight.
Inside the card I kept the afternoon Tea theme going with the addition of a doily and and central die cuts to reflect the outside of the card
I will be entering this card into the following Challenges.
