Good Old Fashioned, Modern Baubles
The cupcake inspirations challenge features the most amazing cupcake, decorated with the old fashioned coloured balls that anyone my age used to see on most iced Christmas edibles before silver became the only easily available choice. (Sob). Anyway, the challenge is to be inspired by the cupcake in some way and make a card. I was and I did. I used Amber Ink's acorn bauble from the 'Tis the Season to be Pretty' set of Digi stamps. Amazing how one small image canbe used to fill a 6" square card on a large repeat! Love that manipulation-able-ness. Yeah - you understood, no matter how bad the word! Anyway, I traced over the outlines with Glossy Accents and blitzed them with Glamour Dust. I painted them baubles with Twinkling H20s to try and replicate that shiny 'ball' colour, the rest you can see...emboss background, blah blah.
