Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #74

I was looking at The Daily Dare blogspot and saw that Taylored Expressions was back and hosting the Cupcake Challenge. I love those little cupcakes! They're so cute. The sketch was really cute, so I thought "Why not?"

I made a card using Kraft CS as the base and Pink Armadillo DP. The image is from CC Designs' Gingersnaps Celebrate collection that I got from I've never used this particular stamp from the set, but she just looked so cute. Of course, it would be more my style if she was holding a latte...

The image is stamped on watercolor paper with StazOn ink and colored with watercolor pencils. The boots have black glaze ink on them so they look like patent leather and the martini glass has clear glaze ink on it so it would look like glass.

I cut out the image and mats with the Nestabilities Label 1 die.

This is a fun challenge blog and I'm glad to see it's back. Go over to the Cupcake Challenge and give it a try.
