Spotlight Cupcakes

May 31, 2015

When I updated my blog in February 2016, I lost all the posting I had already done. I am doing my best to put the posts back up but I do not remember all the details for each card.  Unfortunately, the details for this project may be a bit scarce.

I just bought some very cheap water color pencils and wanted to play with them. I had also recently seen a video about spot light coloring, so I figured that would be a good technique to play with the water colored pencils.



Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started with a panel of water color paper. I stamped an all over pattern using cupcakes, cherries, and hearts. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink, which did smudge when I added water. I lightly traced a circle using a jar lid. I added the water color pencil and used a water brush to blend it out.

I kept the color to the inside of the circle. I used the black water colored pencil to add a bit of color and some shadows to the rest of the images.

Once dry, I adhered the water color panel to a black card base. I also added a sentiment banner. I inked the edges of the banner to help it stand out.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Bake Me a Cake and Sophie’s Sentiments

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

Hope you enjoyed the card
