Cupcake Queen

Hello.  Welcome.  I'm having great fun playing with Double Cupcake Anya stamp from The Greeting Farm.  Actually this is one of those projects you finish and realise it's going to fit in everywhere.  It's going to be perfect for a friend who didn't get an card this year on her birthday because, quite honestly, I still don't know what happened to February.  As I was colouring this Anya I thought she would be perfect.

I coloured Anya with Promarkers and used VersaMagic Peach Pastel Chalk ink for her face.  I added Wink of Stella Clear to her boots, cupcake frosting and the butterfly, but her hair is also glittery so I must have put my fingers in it whilst still wet.  I tried some shading on her hair.  Quite adventurous for me.  I also used glossy accents on the butterfly because this really brings out the wink.  The panel behind her is corrugated card with gesso and Walnut Stain DI.  I cut it using X-cut Ornate Frame die.  The pink layer and the cupcake border are some un-named printed papers I have.  The photo corners and enamel dots came with my card from my February CCC buddy Linda.  Thanks Linda.  The sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp.  I added pink ric-rac ribbon to the bottom of the card and around the corrugated frame as well.  I used Walnut Stain and a patterned Fiskars brayer on the white base card to give a bit of interest.
