I combined several challenges for today's card: Color My Heart: Lagoon, Sorbet, and Flaxen; CAS(E) this Sketch #90; and Heart2Heart: Inspired by Food.
The stamps are from a retired CTMH set called A Chocolate Affair. I stamped the cupcake in Versamark and then used chalk to color. Remember chalk? I hardly pull it out any more, but it was perfect to color this little cupcake. The sentiment actually reads, "I never met a CHOCOLATE I didn't like," so I stamped the top line in white and the bottom line in black.
Now...you see that cool marbling effect. Here's how I did that. I set the lid of my Momento Tuxedo Black ink pad right on top of my card. And it wasn't on purpose. What's a girl to do but add a whole bunch more and pretend it was the plan all along? I even added a touch of black sponging around the edges of the top panel to increase deception.
Background paper is CTMH Chalk It Up, Baker's Twine and colored chalk is Stampin' Up!, Q-tips for applying chalk from Johnson 'n Johnson. :)
Time for crit group. Depending on what they think of my synopsis for "Valley of Shadows" I may need to make consolation cupcakes later today.
Until next time,
I never met a cupcake I didn't like either! I love your story about the marbling! Happens here all the time! My scrap room is such a mess, I'm constantly placing things where they don't belong and then getting into trouble! Hope things go well for you today and they are celebratory cupcakes!!ReplyDelete
