Sketch Challenge

This is a card I did for this weeks sketch nkirkcupcakesketch-copy.jpgchallenge on SCS.  It gave me a chance to use my Nestabilities (I love this product!) and the Sweet Treats set by Flourishes.

The particulars of the sketch are on SCS, so I won’t go in to the details here, but let me show you how I created the image.







Using clear stamps are great!  This image was created with NO masking.  First, using a marker, ink the top tier of the 3 tiered plate stamp – and only ink the front of the plate.



Then, start adding the cupcakes.  Because the stamps are clear, you can see exactly where to place them.  Put three on the bottom row, then just work your way up to the top row.

 Here is how it looks  without any coloring – very simple to do.


I used cocoa and blue paper, cocoa ink then colored with Prisma pencils.  You can’t tell from the photo, but I used crystal effects for the top of the cupcakes, just to give them a little more dimension.  The ribbon is from the LilyKate ribbon collection and was the perfect color combination!
