Creative Inspiration Paints-Icing Challenge

ShellySchmidtMay02cupcakescloseup 
Icing- a yummy (usually sugary) topping applied to the top of something yummy to add further calories further enhance the flavor of the already yummy treat! 
Sketch by MoJo Monday
Mojo137Sketch
ShellySchmidtMay02FCDcupcakes
The stamps are from Firecracker Designs by Pamela and are colored with Copic markers E31,E33,E35,E37,R81,R83,R85. I applied TuTu Pink Creative Inspirations Paint over the top- note how you can still see the shading from the Copic markers through the CI paints.
Challenges for this card:
MoJo Monday-sketch
Rosie Dee’s-So Yummy
Incy Wincy-Anything Goes
Stamping Sisters in Christ-sewing
Fab n Funky-Show us your edge
I had so much fun, I decided to make a second card with the CI paints……I have alot of birthday cards to make in May…….so I went to town…..

Here is the card

This card was alot of fun- I got into my old stash of Technique Junkies backgrounds- and picked this Gesso Chic from Dec 06/Jan07 and added CB Highlights. I used a digital image from CocoDingo. I colored with Copics and painted over it all with Angel wings Creative Inspirations Paints.  My brother plays the bass guitar, so I decided to send this to him for his birthday next Monday.
Challenges:
Incy Wincy-Anything goes
Pile it on-Boyish Colors
Simon Says-Celebrations/Birthday (this is a birthday card)
I hope you will stop by the Creative Inspirations blog to see what the Dt has created with the Icing theme today!
