Truly Scrumptious Challenge 6

Hi everyone, and Happy Wednesday.
We've got another fantastic sketch challenge at Truly Scrumptious this week. Scrumptious Cupcakes are the theme, with downloads from The Cutting Cafe. There are so many variations for cupcakes, you can decorate them how you like, they just need to be mouthwateringly delicious...and I've not had a cupcake yet that wasn't delicious. Mmmm.....my mouth's watering already.
I've chosen Bo Bunny papers...no surprise there...but they are from a different collection this time. I love those rich colours.
I stamped a Hero Arts Cranesbill stamp on the Bazzil cupcake mat, using primary and secondary stamping, to get a softer effect, and a sense of distance. I also inked around the edges, and sponged ink into the centre of the mat to add to the soft look. It's all very subtle.
I coloured and cut out my cupcake and stand images, and glued them onto the mat. I added a black outline around part of the cake stand for a bit of definition. Then a touch of glitter to some of the hearts, and layered up the Bo Bunny papers. A couple of Hydrangea blossoms from Prima, and 'VOILA' there you have it....

This is how I finished off the inside of the card. I love that shadow stamping, and should try it more often. Hope you'll join in with the challenge this time, can't wait to see your Truly Scrumptious creations.
