Guava Cupcake



I bought this cupcake stamp at the stamp and scrap sale my group had last week. I don't know where it's from but I had to have it. I stamped the image with Jetblack Stazon on watercolor paper. I colored the paper liner of the cupcake with the Blush Blossom marker. You don't get marker lines on the watercolor paper. I used Groovy Guava ink refill and my aquapainter to color the cupcake frosting. The candle is Wild Wasabi and the flame is Summer Sun. I colored around the cupcake with Sahara Sand and then added dazzling diamonds glitter to the frosting and the flame with my 2-way glue pen. The tiny cupcake and the "wish big" comes from the Short and Sweet stamp set. It's one of my favorite stamp sets from this catalog. It comes with the 6 words in script and corresponding teeny images to go with it. Everything looks better in miniature.

The paper is the Groovy Guava monochromatic designer paper, Blush Blossom cardstock an Groovy Guava cardstock. It's topped off with Groovy Guava double stitched ribbon.

It's still chilly in Minnesota but the sun is shining and that's more than 1/2 the battle! We're supposed to get warmer temps later this week. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
