Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 365

Sunday, July 3, 2016

Hello my crafty friends!
Hope you're all enjoying this summer!
We are back with the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge today! Woo Hoo!
We have a few new DT members starting today, they're all so talented I am certain they will inspire you and myself!!! Please help us welcome them ;-)
This week's sponsor is fabulous Winnie & Walter ;-)
I'm a big fan of them, especially their awesome sentiment dies!


They are generously giving away a $25 gift card to one lucky winner this week! 

What a perfect theme to showcase the Winnie & Walter products!?
They have so many beautiful flower sets, I'm sure you'll find your favorite!
Okay, here is my take...;-)

We were all offered $20 gift voucher to purchase their products, thank you so much Shay! How generous of you!!
With that, I immediately went to their website and got a few things (how can I NOT spend more than $20 worth of stuff when you shop there!? lol)

I HAD to get the In Bloom:Anna's Flora because of this beautiful sunflower!
The day I received my order, I had just watched the video by Kristina Werner showing how to color with Zig Clean Color brush set, and I was totally inspired by her! 
I heat embossed the sunflower in the middle first, then I masked it, and heat embossed the other two flowers and a couple of leaves. I hand drawn the stems. This was SO MUCH FUN to color!!! 

When I was all done coloring these beauties, I die cut the sentiment out of my watercolor, die cut another one from a cork sheet, nested the cork in, then put the watercolor piece on top of it. Some sparkling sequins and Linen Thread were added, done!

*my notes*
