After what felt like a forever long (two week) summer break, Cupcake Inspirations is back with an all new challenge. This week, there is a theme challenge, and with the Forth of July just around the corner in the US, it seems like a fitting challenge, FIREWORKS.
This week CIC is sponsored by Sparkle N’ Sprinkle, who is offering very generous $15 gift certificate to one random participant.
Sparkle N’ Sprinkle also was sweet enough to provide the Design Sweeties with a digital stamp to play with. I, who normally never would use a shadow digi because you can’t color them in, this week was so excited to play with the shadow digi Right Beside You. I printed the digi out onto some watercolor paper and heat set the ink with my heat gun. Then I pulled out my brushos and went crazy trying to build some fireworks in the background. I used my white gel pen to accent the sky explosions just a bit more! The whole card got a bit of a glaze of dark watercolor over it. For me, the fireworks are so much more special inside the arms of someone you love!
I can’t wait to see what you come up with using this fun Fireworks theme!
