Sweet Baker ft. Craftin Desert Divas

EDIT: Top Picks at Cupcake Inspirations 

Hello and welcome! I really love this Sweet Baker digital stamp from Craftin Desert Divas so I decided to make a bright and cheerful birthday card using this lovely image. The color scheme and the cake image are inspired by Cupcake Inspirations Challenge mood board. (Shown below) 

For the background, I die cut two white panels with the Fancy Frame dies. Then I masked four different areas from left to right and sponged Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio distress inks respectively. I also spritzed some pearlized water for some shimmer and used water droplets to create the faded effect. 

I colored both of the images with Copic markers. It is my first time trying the flicking technique to color hair and I'm actually quite pleased with the result. I'm still relatively new to these markers and I definitely have a lot more techniques to learn, but I'm slowly getting there. I finished the card by handwriting the sentiment with a black pen and embellishing the card with some sequins, rhinestones and a strip of gold glitter cardstock. I hope you enjoyed this card. Thanks for stopping by and have a sweet day!
