Cupcake Kickoff

What better way to start off this blog than with a cupcake? I was playing with this cupcake image this afternoon and thought it would be a wonderful way to show you just how shimmery these paints are.

The cupcake frosting was painted with Bubble Gum, a beautiful soft pink. Then the flower petals were painted in Magenta for a nice complement. Next, the flower center was painted in Royal Purple. The wrapper was first colored with the E31 Copic marker as a base, and then Golden Wheat was painted on top. It's shimmery and gorgeous!

Now this image is ready to take center stage as the focal point of a fantastic card or project.

Stamp: Clear Design Cupcakes CL158 (Hero Arts)
Paper: Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Smooth (Neenah)
Paint/Ink: Golden Wheat, Magenta, Royal Purple and Bubble Gum Shimmerz (Shimmering Products); Brick Beige E31 Marker (Copic); Jet Black Archival Ink (Ranger)

We're so glad you joined us for our kickoff post! Please continue to check back for new techniques, prizes, and lots of creativity and fun!

Shimmer on!
