I'm Sweet on You

I just love cupcakes! This one is from the new DoodleFactory Valentines Remix collection available at Starving Artistamps. I made my background paper by repeatedly stamping the XO from the Sweet on You sentiments. This is a simple way to to make a custom background, but a stamp positioner is essential. Well, I think they are essential anyway...I really couldn't live without my Stamp-a-ma-jig!

I tried to used colors on this one that are a bit more on the masculine side. The inks are Fluid Chalk Lipstick Red and Chestnut Roan. I did some simple paper piecing on the cupcake, Cuttlebug embossed the bottom panel and not so carefully brayered on the brown ink. Some ribbon, red Stickles, and a pearl finish everything off. The layout is CPS63, which I chose for Pick your Favorite Sketch Week over at Card Postioning Systems.

Thanks for stopping by!
