I liked the way the The FineTec Gold M600 Watercolor Pans looked with a flower arrangement so much that I decided to look through my stamps to see what else had an open design that could be watercolored with this medium and found Whimsy Stamps Cupcake Treat Trio. I love the sparkle and shine you get with these metallic watercolors, and the gold is beautiful on black cardstock.
I stamped the image on Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock with VersaMark Ink and embossed it using Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder, heat setting it with my Marvy Embossing Tool. The sentiment is from Hero Arts Many Birthday Messages and was stamped and embossed in the same manner.
The cupcakes were colored with 660 Sterling Silver for the cupcake liner, 620 Inka Gold for the cake, and 650 Luna Gold for the icing. Once everything was dry the focal image was run through the Sizzix Big Shot with the largest Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles. A rectangle of Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock was cut 1/8” larger with a Guillotine paper trimmer and adhered to the back of the focal image with Sookwang Be Creative Tape. Darice Sticky Back Fun Foam was added to the back of the focal image to add dimension.
A side folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the focal image was attached using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done. Love the way it turned out, and it could be used as either a masculine or feminine birthday card.
