Cupcakes with Chocolate Bon Bon's

By the time you read this I will have my first Dave Matthews concert under my belt and will be enroute to number two! Don't worry...I WILL be boring you with pictures.

This week's Bellarific Friday challenge was to use pink and brown. I'm not going to post the inspiration picture because I used some creative license on the pink and went for something a bit more subtle, that exact shade of pink in the challenge pic would REALLY have been a challenge for me.

With pink and brown in mind I flipped through the bindah's (yes...i have more than one!) and I didn't have to flip too long because as soon as I saw Stella with her cupcake I jumped on it. Chocolate cupcake with pink icing and a chocolate Bon Bon to top it off! I think I could eat this card. And during my colorin' frenzy sistah Paula was emailing me trying her darndest to break my mojo! Sorry just couldn't do it! So I knew the colors, I knew the image then I sifted through my papers and Basic Grey porcelain was perfect...I even had the matching brad. It really came together quite easily for me...I finished it in less than 60 hours...LOL!!!

I coloured her with my copics and my current trend continues with using pencils for shading. I find it quicker and if you like to use gamsol, it won't bleed your copics. I cut her out with my Spellbinders Labels die, glittered up the cupcake, wand and tierra, added some Ranger Matte accents to the chocolate bon bon sponged the edge with Versamagic scattered straw. I have several sentiments that could have worked with her but I thought this one was fun and funky and suited the giant cupcake. I did split it up and stamped it twice so I could fit it into my tag. You really should spend some time going thru the Stamping Bella sentiments because they are fun and clever and when you mix and match them with your images the possibilites are endless!

Have a wonderful day!

Your work never ceases to AMAZE me! I am so excited to hear that you do some shading with Prismacolor Pencils/OMS because I have done this same thing (sadly mine never looks as good as yours, but anyhoo...)! I always kind of felt like I was "cheating", but not anymore! I actually really like how the Prisma's seem to blend so well over the Copics! Enough chatter...thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the tips on shading with the Prismacolour Pencils. I have copics and the Lyra's and I have yet to try this! As always your cards are amazing. I entered a card in the bella contest as well! And today we are heading down to Bella Land! Look forward to seeing whats new on your blog!

how could you speak my name in such a manner? I would never try to break your mojo...ok, I would, I lied. Looks like your mojo was never touched though because this is as stunning as all the others and ya know I love me some STELLA!! It's just perfect and now I am gonna sell my pencils on EBAY.
