Cup Cake Challenge - DT CALL



The sun is shining and the birds are chirping out of my window. The first summer fly has come through the window and is buzzing around the room. After investigating around my room and sniffing for anything edible, it decided that the Adirondack paint dabbers are not worth the hassle. With its six legs dabbed in gold ink, it slipped out of the slightly opened window, leaving the sweet taste of summer echoing in my mind.

Sorry people, I am feeling a bit poetic, if a lady may. I was inspired by the picture challenge for the Cupcake Craft DT Call. The colours, here, came much brighter than they actually are although I would have liked it to be a bit lighter.




Materials:

Tim Coffey - K& Co Papers

Green and white cardstock>

Flower Punch

Gold Rhinestone

Adirondack Gold Acrylic Paint Dabber

Chipboard

Snag' em Stamps - Flowers

Papermania - Happy Mother's Day

Faber Kastell Watercolours

Tools:

Die Cutting Machine Sizzix Decorative Accents

How to:

  1. Trim a piece of green card stock to cover the card blank and a piece of patterned paper measuring 1/2 inch smaller. Distress the edges with gold dabbing paint.
  2. Stamp and colour the image, matting it on green card stock. Do the same with the sentiment.
  3. Die cut and paint the accents with gold paint. Trim to fit the card.
  4. Punch three green flowers and six from co-ordinating paper. Paint the edges gold and curl them using a toothpick. Assemble using glue dots and embellish with gold rhinestons.
  5. Attach everything as shown.
