Lucky Cupcakes

Hello.  Welcome.  A happy St Patrick's Day to you all.  Well, you have to get with the mood don't you?  It seems it's lucky and green all over the place so I thought I'd offer up something along those lines as well.  

I have used Double Cupcake Anya from The Greetings Farm.  Coloured with Promarkers and sitting on a lucky horseshoe cut from green mirror card using a Go Create die.  I've used twine to suspend the horseshoe from the Tando Creative chipboard border which I coloured with Emerald Fantasy Prisme paint.  This chipboard is from Work of Parts Come Fly With Me kit.  She was hanging just from the twine but I realised that wouldn't work so I have used foam pads behind.  I've used a piece of brown wallpaper to back my panel.  Lovely texture.....

I have altered her a bit to make her cupcakes more lucky.  I think that was a strawberry on top but it looked enough like a heart that I stamped it lots, cut them out and made lucky four leaf clovers.  The butterfly was coloured with green Wink of Stella and then I added glossy accents.  It really brings out the sparkle.  The sentiment is a Crafty Individuals Stamp, distressed and coloured with DI Mowed Lawn and then mounted on a ribbon.  

Just a close up on the chipboard so you can see the detail and also the lovely effect of the Fantasy Prisme paint.  Like cracked enamel.

  6. This is a wonderful card that's so full of great ideas! I have never seen anyone using a horseshoe as a swing before, but I love the effect! Very clever idea. Equally clever was how you transformed the cupcakes by making new shamrock toppers out of hearts. Genius! I like how you made the horseshoe out of mirror card, which creates a lovely contrast to the patterned paper background. Thanks so much for sharing this stunning project with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
