Cupcakes!!

These gorgeous cupcakes are from 2 Cute Rubber Stamps, a freebie Heidi so generously gave to participate at her challenge blog.
I used as inspiration the colors and positioning of the cutties the Cupcake inspiration challenge #74 (sadly I didn´t make it on time...). I tried also to keep it simple and only used a white gel pen to faux stitch the squares and write the sentiment
I colored the images with colored pencils, added glitter glue on the frosting for some sparkling effect, and I placed them with foam tape on the card.


I printed five cupcakes just in case and I had one left, so I decided to use it to make a small card (those you can put along with your present in a paper bag) with scraps of paper I had around.
I colored the image again with colored pencils but this time I blended them with mineral oil. And instead of glittering the frosting I glittered the paper, I added a couple of brads too. The sentiment is from TLC creations.

I´m playing at:
2 Cute Rubber Stamps: challenge and freebie
Cupcake craft Challenges #106: let´s get digital
Party time Tuesdays #14: brads
The Creative Cottage challenge #22: celebrations
Glitterbabe´s challenge #10: free up a freebie
Paper Play challenge #35: in stitches
