My first attempt at a Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. I began with one idea and wound up with something totally different at the end! Everything started with the white paisley and coordinating brown and blue stripe DP paper from DCWV. I couldn't find any green paper in my stash except for this one tiny piece. So, I chose to stamp it with Sophie's clear stamp from Bo Bunny in brown and teal blue. I used the same stamp and inks to stamp some of the flower dies also. I outlined everything mostly in brown ink for a more worn and shabby look. The bird die I cut in brown for his base, then applied the paisley to his body and the stripes to his tail.
Stamps: flower bouquet - 'Sophie' from Bo Bunny. Sentiment - Inkadinkadoo.
Paper: DP - Die Cuts With A View; brown cardstock, teal cardstock, light green DP from stash.
Ink: brown and teal blue from Hampton Arts
Extras: buttons, teal gem; green gems; wire jumpring, pearl brad, brown ribbon.
Have a Cupcake kind of day!
