Here is a card for a friend who's birthday is coming up. I made the cupcake embellishment a few weeks back by doing some paper piecing with some scraps, but wasn't sure how to move forward with it.
I used some lovely Hero Arts birthday stamps to stamp the tiny cupcakes in the background with tea dye distress ink and masked off a border round the edge. I then used a promarker to outline my background.
The scraps I used are some Basic Grey pieces I had left over from this card I made earlier in the year, but not wanting to throw anything away I kept the tiniest pieces! I stamped with some black memento ink with the large cupcake stamp which came in a tiny set from We R Memory keepers onto the scraps. I then cut them out and layered them up. The cherry on top of the cupcake has had glossy accents added for a little extra dimension!
This card is being entered into the Artistic Stamper Backgrounds challenge
