Taylor's Cupcake Challenge


I just had to make one more card today. This is for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge. I just love the sketch and it was perfect for this awesome Northwoods Rubber Stamp I bought from Stampers Dream. If you haven't been to Michelle's store, you are in for a real treat!!! Check it out...she has lots of fabulous stuff and wonderful service!!!
The image was stamped with Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers. Then Soft Sky was sponged on around the colored images. Pearl White Lumiere was brushed on over the snow areas and a little was stippled on the pine boughs. The edges were distressed a little with the distressing tool.
The ribbon is from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts and the background paper is by Stampin Up! The scalloped paper is from the Wassail collection by Basic Grey. Thanks for visiting and have a great afternoon.
Recipe: Stamps: Northwoods Rubber Stamp
Paper: White, Baja Breeze, Hunter Green, Real Red, Stampin Up!, Basic Grey
Ink: Memento Black, Soft Sky
Accessories: Copic Markers, Rhinestones, Ribbon, Dimensionals, Scallop Punch, Lumiere
