Challenge, Cupcake!

For my first Friday Sketchers Challenge, I just HAD to ink up my new Cuppacakeabella.
I also wanted to participate in Gina's Card Kabin Blog Candy Challenge... and my entry applies to both challenges... I used the Sketch from Friday Sketchers and the requirements from Gina's challenge (pretty paper, flowers, ribbon & a stamp) and this is what I came up with. I wrote the sentiment b/c I didn't really have anything to go with my image (yet). And the scan didn't pick it up very well, but I watercolored the Cupcake and the polkadots on Bella's dress using my Watercolor Wonder Crayons (LOVE THOSE!). The icing is Lovely Lilac and the wrapper & polkadots are both Pixie Pink. I used an image from the Fabulous Flowers (SU) set for the BG on the WW cardstock. I ticket punched the lovely lilac layer and dabbed a little Pixie Pink ink onto an already pink flower for a little punch. As an afterthought, I masked and stamped the Polkadot stamp from the Polkadots and Paisley (SU) stamp set onto the Lovely Lilac cardstock. All in All, I love how this turned out (except my little boo boo on the Lovely Lilac paper - did you see that? - and it's WAAAAAY prettier in real life! Oh, and the bella image layer is pop-dotted... is that a word?


On to greater things... I got a RAK a couple weeks ago and have neglected to post it... my Best Friend, PennyO (myhobbyisstamping on SCS) sent me a card just because and I just think it's GOJUS (shout out to Jan Tink!)

I miss you too Penny... watch the mail... your Mother's Day card is en route!

Well y'all, I'm off to keep playin... I'm inspired... perhaps because I have two more uninked bellas sitting on my table SCREAMIN "Ink Me, Ink Me!" TATA for now!
