Hi! I'm thrilled to be Surprise Sweetie over at Cupcake Inspirations Blog today! The theme this week is Tags. Check out this gorgeous cupcake:
I tried to stick to a similar color scheme with pinks, kraft and white and this is the card I came up with.
I took a sheet of watercolor paper and placed it onto my craft mat where I'd smooshed Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick inks and spritzed with water. I then die-cut a tag and a banner from the panel and layered them onto some black cardstock. The flowers come from Bloom & Grow by Verve and were stamped with Rosie Cheeks and Hollyhock inks. The leaves, from Turning a New Leaf, were stamped with Green Leaf ink. These were arranged onto a white panel I'd run through my Big Shot with PTI's Canvas cover plate.
All of this was adhered to a kraft card base. Some pearls were colored with a black Sharpie for the centers of the flowers and a twine bow finished the card.
Thanks for visiting and thanks to the team at Cupcake Inspirations for inviting me to join them this week. I hope you'll make a tag card and link up.
