Eat Dessert First

Have you ever heard the saying "Life is short, eat dessert first."? I think that's what these cupcakes are saying. The Creative Inspirations Design Team B had the fun of creating art featuring desserts. The cupcakes were stamped with a stamp from Club Scrap, masked and stamped twice more. the sentiment is also a Club Scrap stamp. To color the cupcakes I used blush, spring green, and tanzanite paints for the papers, chocolate for the frosting, caramel for the cake. The cherries are candy cane Stickles. the background was stencilled using a sea sponge, a Glimmer screen stencil, and mellow yellow paint. Stencilling with a sponge works really great. This card is truly shimmery, although the scanning doesn't show the full shimmer.
