Dancing Queen ....

... Good morning! A friend recently asked me to make a birthday card - the brief was dance, pink, purple, and sparkle. I sent him a few ideas and this is the one he picked to send:

Stamps: Visible Image - Born to Perform; Hero Arts - Cupcakes
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black
Accessories: White Card; Copic Markers; Clear Embossing Powder; Glitter; Sakura Stardust Pens

I'm submitting this card to Addicted to Stamps and More! - ATSM#399 where the theme is Any Occasion, and to Seize the Birthday - STB#208 - it's always AG Birthday. 

I stamped the ballerina in Versafine black ink and heat embossed her with clear powder. I placed a mask over her and stamped the middle cupcake. I added a mask to that cupcake and stamped the remaining cakes. I used Copic markers to colour the frosting to match the brief - shades of pink and purple. After colouring the cupcakes I restamped them in Versafine black ink and embossed with clear powder - this gives a lovely crisp image. I added the birthday greeting (which comes from the Cupcakes stamp set). I trimmed the panel to be slightly smaller than the card base, edged it with a pink marker, and adhered it to the card. I used a dark pink Sakura Stardust pen to add some subtle shimmer to the middle cake. I drew a line of pink ink along the embossed line and used a dry paint brush to pull the shimmer out. I finished the front by adding some glitter to the cupcake frosting. On the inside, I cut another piece of white card and stamped the greeting and another cute little cake with a candle. It sparkles too!

That's all for today. See you soon.

Super fun and creative card. Loving the sparkle and shine you've added to your card. The colorful cupcakes are a great contrast to the ballerina silhouette. Thanks for joining us at Addicted to Stamps and More!
