Cherry on Top

Hello everyone,

Another lovely challenge at The Shabby Tea Room this week with the theme “Classic Patterns”.  The challenge is to use the colors, green, pink, red and white and also polka dots and/or gingham. You can see the inspiration photo here. The cupcake image (or maybe it is an ice cream) is from a local rubber stamping company, Great Impressions (South Africa).  Great fun to colour this image, especially the cherry. I added  glossy accents to the cherry and lots of glitter to the icing sugar for shine.

I entered my card for the following challenges:

A peep at the inside

The sentiment and rosebuds

  • Designer papers
  • Great Impressions (South Africa) stamp “Cupcake” F1646
  • Whimsy sentiment stamp

  • Spellbinders Nestabilities “Ovals”
  • Spellbinders Shapeabilities “Fancy Tags Two”

  • Tim Holtz distress ink “Tea Dye” and “Victorian Velvet”

I’ve just placed an order for seam binding and this Moss Green is on my list, I am so pleased I’ve ordered it as it looks gorgeous. hugs Sharon x
