I have been looking forward to colouring this stamp since it arrived a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to keep it for my post at Scrap’n Stamp, so kept it on my desk until earlier yesterday.
It is such a fun stamp to colour, which I did using my Copic Sketch Markers. As I was doing the colouring I was making a swatch, so I photographed the swatch to show you here.
As always, when I colour with Copics I start at lightest colour going to darkest, then back down to lightest. The only time I deviate from this is if the image is tiny, then I start with the darkest colour and go to the lightest only once.
On the cupcake liner or tin, it looked just regular when I finished the colouring. I saw a photograph in Pinterest of a card done by Kelly Latevola where she decorated her liner, so I followed suit, and decorated mine with gelly roll pens and the RV69 Copic Marker.
You can see when looking at the liner that it changes position in the middle. Keep in mind when looking at my card that I cut part of the image off, so for the centre of the liner look from the strawberry down. So on the right side of the liner the highlights run down the rights side, on the left side they run down the left side.
When I was finished colouring I fussy cut the image out. I then stencilled my card base using a stencil from A Colorlife Design called Flower Explosion with a very light brushing of Distress Ink in Mowed Lawn. These stencils can only be ordered from the manufacturer in Texas USA, so I have put the link at the end below.
Do remember however, when shopping at A Colorful Life Design to use my Discount Code of Kia10 when checking out.
To the cream I added the gold jelly roll pen as well, along with some of the white. This is a la-di-da cupcake.
To finish my card front, I decided on placement of the cupcake, then cut it in two pieces. I used the left over piece inside the card, and attached the front piece to the card base using foam squares.
I then stamped the sentiment using gold embossing powder on black cardstock and attached it to part of the cupcake with glue, and the cardbase with a foam square, then added a splattering of gumdrops.
For the inside, I stencilled again and attached the left over cupcake piece, then stamped the sentiment using Memento Ink.
