Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #486


Cupcake Inspirations Challenge is back with a brand new line up of fun challenges.  Yes, this long running challenge group took a little break, but they are back with all the fun.  This week we are hosting a color challenge featuring the colors Green, White and Brown.

EK Gorman, CIC486 eI created a two for one card this week, pulling out some oldies but goodies craft supplies.  Because I created a green alcohol ink background and then lifted some of it with alcohol ink lifter, I was able to stamp those floral leaves onto a second piece of cardstock.

EK Gorman, CIC486 aI stamped out, colored and die cut some crazy little birds from the old but classic Tim Holtz stamp set.

EK Gorman, CIC486 bI made certain to add the eyes and wings with two dimensional tape to give him a little bit more of a wonky look.  I also stamped a fun sentiment from an old Dylusions stamp set that reads “Pretending I’m a pleasant person is exhausting!”  I know the sentiment is a little hard to read in the picture by in real life it looks great!

EK Gorman, CIC486 cI repeated the same process with the second card, but when I stamped the sentiment, I used the wrong ink.  The green ink I first stamped in smudged everywhere, so smudged it completely out and restamped the sentiment in the correct ink.

EK Gorman, CIC486 dIn the end, I really liked how the mistake looked as a final product.

I can’t wait to see what you create with this color challenge.  Until then, Happy Crafting!
