I don't know if there is such a thing as vintage cupcakes, but I thought I would give the vintage technique another go with cupcake images. Red velvet cupcakes or as best as I could muster.
I had to make this card fast because my craft room is incredibly hot - scorching - even in the evening and I had to get outside before I overheated.
I used the sketch from Taylored Expressions this week and the cupcake theme was inspired by Raise the Bar's baked goodies challenge. Of course, for me, this meant red velvet cupcakes.
The colours I used: Bravo Burgundy, Basic Black and Very Vanilla. I stamped the cupcake images with Staz-On ink onto watercolour paper. After playing around with the watercolour technique and various papers, SU!'s watercolour paper is the best for colouring without the streakiness. More on that in another post. Once I completed colouring the images, the edges of the paper were swiped onto the Bravo Burgundy ink pad. Nothing special here -- I just ran the edges across the ink pad. Next, I sprayed some gold smooch spritz onto the card. I definitely "over-smooched" (over-spritzed?), but it is what it is.
Here's a close-up of the smoochiness or spritziness...whatever you wish. :)
