Cupcake Craft Challenge 2

This is my entry for this week's Cupcake Craft Challenge. This week's challenge is based on a sketch (see link). You can change it, rotate it etc as long as the original sketch idea can still be seen. The challenge closes at 12pm on 1st September.

My idea for the sketch was inspired by this gorgeous paper which arrived from Banana Frog this morning (see below). As soon as I saw it, I thought of birthday cupcakes. This reminded me of the Cupcake Craft Challenge and that I hadn't checked what this week's challenge was. When I looked at the sketch I thought I could use my cupcake idea whilst also being quite apt!!

I'm really pleased with how it turned out as it's very tactile. I used my snow writer for the icing on the cupcakes and whilst it was drying, sprinkled some tiny seed beads into it. The cupcake itself I just drew freehand though I've got my eye on the Hero Arts transparent cupcake set to buy at some point!

Crafty stash used: Black fine writer; Copic pens; Paper (Dream Street Papers); Assorted cardstock; Snow writer, Seed beads, Rub on (Papermania)

Here is the wonderful set of papers I received from Banana Frog this morning. They've got a sale on at the moment and some of their 12"x12" papers are reduced to 7p! This little (!) lot I got for just over a fiver!!!
