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.
