Here is my card for Taylor's Weekly Cupcake Challenge. I did not use a cupcake this week, (amazing, I know), and I kinda changed the sketch. The vertical stripe is a little wider than the original sketch. But as Taylor says the sketches are meant for inspiration if your creation turns out a little different that's OK.


These birds are from the "Best Friends" stamp set from Inkadinkado, aren't they adorable? I am trying new permanent black inks with my Sharpies, to see which one works best. I picked up Brilliance Graphite Black ink by Tsukineko from Michales. This ink reminds me of Craft ink from SU. It smeared a little, but that might have been because I didn't let it dry enough.

I colored the image in with my Sharpie Markers, and then sponged around it with River Rock Ink. To make it look a little "aged", I overstamped it with Creamy Caramel and the Linen Background stamp. That blue is not as bright IRL as it looks in the picture. I layer this on top of my new designer paper is from K-OLOGY, it is called Hannah.

Stamps: Best Friends, Linen, Circle of Friendship Paper: Natuals Ivory, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Groovy Guava, Paper Trey White, Hannah DP Inks: River Rock, Old Olive, Creamy Caramel, Brilliance Black, Chocolate Chip Marker Extras: Sharpies, Sponge Dauber, Chocolate Taffeta Ribbon, Tool Kit, Dimensionals, 1/2", 1", 1-1/8", & 1-1/4" circle punches
