It's Not All Black and White

Mmmmmm...Icing

Yep, with cake, it's all about the icing for me.

Here
, I used Lauren's Saturday Sketch for this Verve cupcake card. The big cupcake: the wrapper is paper pieced with the background paper and the icing is rock 'n' rolled with blush blossom then pretty in pink ink. (That means, dip the whole stamp in light color, then roll just edges in darker ink. Then stamp.) I colored the flowers with copic markers. The smaller cupcakes: the wrapper is two stamps. The base is solid celery, the lines are done in olive. The icing is rock 'n' rolled again, this time with pretty in pink and regal rose. I colored the celery grosgrain ribbon with a copic marker to get this darker color.

What's
In It?
Stamps
: Cupcake Affair (Verve Stamps)
Paper: white (Papertrey Ink); regal rose, old olive (Stampin' Up!); Sultry (Basic Grey)
Ink: noir black (Palette); old olive, certainly celery, regal rose, blush blossom, pretty in pink (SU!)
Accessories: circle nestabilities dies (Spellbinders); celery grosgrain ribbon (SU!); Copic markers; icons gems (Me & My Big Ideas)
