Happy Birthday!


It's Wednesday! It's time for a new challenge over at Inkspirational! This time, we are challenged to create a project using the color scheme below:



Now, with color challenges, your are pretty much wide open for what you create.  I decided it was time to ink up a new to me Tim Holtz Blueprint Stamp.  The image was watercolored with Distress Markers and then glittered up with some Mustard Seed Distress Glitter.  The background needed something, so I added Black Embossing Paste using a stencil, both by Wendy Vecchi.  Our sponsor this month is "Inspired by Stamping."  One lucky participant who completes all the September challenges will win a $20 gift card! Please check out the rest of the Design Team's Inkspiration pieces and then join in!  Best wishes, Yvonne

hi Yvonne...I love the icing, very yummy looking! So clever to add the pencil background-this gives a really different look to a cupcake card-very original x

LOVE the dimension with the distress glitter!!! The torn paper at the bottom makes a perfect anchor, too! HUGS and have a great rest of your week! :)

The spots and lines really add that little something extra for the background. The cupcake looks yummy with the distress glitter!

Oh Yvonne! You have no idea how hard some people would find this colour scheme to use but you have made it look effortless. Love this including the stencilling and the frosting on the cake. Hugs, Jenny x
