Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 364

Sunday, June 12, 2016

Hello lovelies, happy Sunday!
It is time for another Cupcake Inspirations Challenge!
This week's sponsor is Pickled Potpourri Designs!

We have a very fun, summery color combo for you!
Sunflowers are my FAVORITE! I love how they stand tall and follow the sun :-)
This color challenge will run for 3 weeks due to the summer break we're taking, so you have a plenty of time to play along!
Alright, here is my take...;-)

The sponsor provided us a few digi images to play with, and I picked this adorable skunk! 

I printed this cutie on Whisper White cardstock, then colored the flower and ladybug with my new Spectrum Noir Markers. I just cannot seem to commit to the price of Copic markers, so I've decided to practice with them first... It is so much fun!

The markers weren't the only new toy I had for this card ;-)
I used the Ken Oliver Color Burst for my background and the sentiment.
It's dry paint, you sprinkle it on watercolor paper and spritz some water, that's it! It's really fun! 

A few clear sequins were added and done!
She is just stinkin' cute!

Well, this digital stamp set comes with 2 skunks, and I just had to use both of the images! I mean, look at this cutie!!

The same process as the other card, I printed on Whisper White cardstock, colored the flowers with the Spectrum Noir markers.

This image had this teeny tiny bee with a dotted line that's tracing his way, and I originally kept the line but I wanted him on top of the sentiment instead. I die cut the sentiment from Basic Black and Crushed Curry cardstock just like the little bee ;-)
The background was made with the same technique as the first card except I used a lot less water on this one to get more of splatter look.

I stamped LOVE over and over to create my own patterned paper.
The watercolor paper seemed to fade right on the white so I matted it onto the Cucumber Crush cardstock first to break it down a bit. I added small pieces of washi tape for the finishing touch ;-)
