I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Eat the Icing First

Good Morning,

It's Sunday morning and that means it's time for a new Paper Players challenge. Our hostess this week is Sandy with a fun CAS theme challenge. Use something "sweet" on your project.

When I sat down to make my card earlier in the week, I was in the mood to color. What's more fun to color than a PI stamp? This set is called "Hello Cupcake" and is a perfect image for something sweet. Since this is also a CAS challenge, I kept the outside of my card to a single layer. The image is stamped with Memento tuxedo black in the lower left corner and then colored with Copics. I made a mask of the image so I could sponge in the grass and sky.  You know me, I had to do a wee bit of embellishing, so I added a few white enamel dots. Also, to add a little more interest to the image, after coloring her dress, I used my white gel pen to add polka-dots.

Here are the links to the other PP DT blogs. Be sure to stop in for more awesome inspiration and to say hello.
