Have a look at Scribbles latest challenge and be inspired; there are lots of
special things happening, here: scribblesdesignschallenge
Get the Scribbles images I've used, here:
EF: Cuttlebug swiss dots (my first ever EF)
Paperpiecing: liquid & cupcake wrapper
Copics: cherry and shading
patterned papers, white pigment pen for highlights.
My assignment was to be inspired by special food at Christmas. In New Zealand we have a summer Christmas and it just so happens to coincide with fresh cherries coming into shops. So for this card I have combined the delicious cherry on a cupcake (with cream cheese icing) and a nice cool drink while we swelter in the heat under a shady tree (sigh).
The image is printed three times, twice on card and once in part onto patterned paper for piecing. Shading is added with Copics in similar colours. WoS is applied to the icing, and Glossy Accents to the cherry (oh yum). The cupcake is raised on 3D foam.
