Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #405

CIC405It is Sunday, so that means it is time for another challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations.  For this challenge we are hosting a color challenge and are looking for the colors spring, pink, and orchid.

This week we are sponsored by Frantic Stamper, who is generously providing a gorgeous detailed die for one random FranticStamperIncSponsorLogoparticipant.

Frantic Stamper was also generous enough to provide the Design Sweeties with a precision die to each of the Design Sweeties.  I choose to play with the Hummingbird Stained Glass die.  I knew I EK Gorman CIC405.1wanted the colors of my stain glass to match as closely as I could with the challenge colors and I didn’t have any paper that would do that on its own, so I blended distress ink onto some card stock.  I used twisted citron, picked raspberry, and seedless preserves.  I used the die to cut allEK Gorman CIC405.2 the blended card stock and a piece of black card stock.  What occurred next was basically a very difficult puzzle piecing to get all the panes inserted where I wanted them.  To get everything to stick well, I laid down row after row of double stick tape.  The puzzle may have been complicated, but I think the end results were totally worth it.
