Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #31





Once again, having so much fun w/ Taylor's Friday challenge (Cupcake Challenge - although you don't have to use any cupcake stamps)...

The first image is the sketch of what the challenge should mimic. And then I used one of my most endeared stamp sets - which is great for several thank you cards I need to get out this weekend.

And one more eloquent touch I'd like to point out as it's a bit tough to see in this pic... on the round red layer (the heart)... after stamping the image with red ink I went back w/ my small waterbrush (thanks for the recommendation Emily - check out the "Stuff I Like" section on her blog) and colored in the heart to give it some more depth... likey?

Details, details...
Stamp sets: Sage Advice and Frames & Flourishes
Colors: Basic Black, Bordering Blue, Riding Hood Red, Basic Gray and Whisper White
Other: 5/8" white organdy ribbon, ticket corner punch, Earth Elements brads, Cuttlebug / Swiss Dots embossing folder, horizontal slot punch and small waterbrush by Niji
