Hello, crafty friends! 

Today is again Seize the Birthday Thursday! It’s the last challenge in April and the Toppings option for this one was chosen by my team mate Glenda! She wants for us to use Food and/or Drink for our projects! 

I had this Candy Cupcake digital image designed by Alex Syberia, already printed on my desk. So it wasn’t hard what food or drink to choose for my card :)!


I colored the cupcake using Copic markers. I chose blueberry frosting for my cupcake and colored it in V Copics. I colored the cupcake liner also in V Copics mixed with C Copics. The cake was colored in E30s Copic colors. I added pink, yellow and orange candies and some white highlights using a white gel pen. After done with coloring I fussy cut the cupcake and set it aside.


To create the background I used the smooshing technique in Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry and Scattered Straw DI to match with the cupcake colors. I dabbed the inks on a sheet of clear acetate, sprayed clear water on it and pressed it on a watercolor paper. After the panel was dry, I cut it using the Simple Stackers die (51-613) by Penny Black and foam mounted it on a light gray cardbase.


I added the cupcake and the sentiment strip on it using some foam tape. The sentiment is from Wishes stamp set (30-103) also by Penny Black. I added Shimmer Pico embellisher on the tiny sprinkles on the frosting to finish off the card.


That’s it from me! Now it’s your turn to play with us! As always you may enter any birthday themed project into our gallery!
