Francesca - Cupcake Girl

Hi All,

It's been a while since I inked up my stamps from Kaftin' Kimmie, so I just had to use one of her adorable images!

My colour scheme is based on SU's retired Afternoon Tea DSP - they are so soft and fragile, but I spiced it up a bit.

My card base is a 5 1/4" square of Whisper White CS.  Next, there is a square of Chocolate Chip, then a layer of DSP.

I put a smaller square of Chocolate Chip CS and DSP in the lower right corner of that.  I added paper piercing and faux stitching around that square, as well as inside the square. I used a Chocolate Chip marker for that. Around that entire base layer, I tied some striped Wild Wasabi ribbon in a knot.

To the top right corner, I added 3 paper flowers from Close To My Heart, topped with Martha Stewart self-adhesive pearls.

For my main panel, I stamped Francesca onto Neenah Solar White CS, coloured her with Copic markers, and cut her out with Curved Rectangle Nesties.  I then traced the outside of the same Nesty onto the DSP, and cut it out by hand for the mat.  I added a Chocolate Chip Photo Corner to the bottom right corner, just so it would stand out against the bottom layers.

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
