Cupcakes and a Wondrous Butterfly



It's Saturday morning again which means a new challenge at Allsorts and this week Susan would like to see 'Cupcakes and Cakes', our sponsor is Scrappers Delight.

My head went a bit blank on this one I can tell you, not a single stamp in my stash that remotely resembles cakes then I remembered a little bag of Tando chipboard shapes I bought at a show a while back and much to my surprise in it was a cupcake.

So I painted it with gesso, then acrylic paints, stamped over the bottom half with a tiny flower stamp to resemble a cupcake case, glittered the top and added some liquid pearls. A Tattered Lace border across the top, some tiny tags which I cut by hand, a bow and button to embellish.


It also seems a good time to share another card which was over at Tattered Lace earlier this week using the beautiful Wondrous Butterfly, it's not unlike the purple and green card on the post below so I won't bore you again with all the details as I went into some depth on the link given in that post.

Happy weekend all.

Pretty, pink cards today. the cupcake looks good enough to eat. I too drew a blank when I saw this weeks Allsorts challenge but I have had a rummage and found one that I think will be suitable. Just need some time to craft now! Study has to take priority this weekend I'm afraid.
Enjoy your weekend

It's good that we have challenges that have us scratching our head from time to time, doesn't it? Makes us think really hard about what to make and we might even find long forgotten things in our stash. ;) Your cupcake turned out beautifully. I just love the glittery top!
And the butterfly card made me go all "wow". It's breath taking!
Hugs! xx
