I so just want to eat you!

I soo loved the sketch over at The Sweetest Thing that I knew I had to make a card with it this week as it is so adorable and dropping cherries on cupcakes just screamed at me to do it!
I wanted to make this card ‘girly’ as it’s for my best friend – no special occasion just a note of Hi & thinking about you so I went with my favourite mix of colours that is pink and brown. 

With the layout of the sketch I was able to make the bottom look like a cupcake and then I found some of my old Santa’s beard fur from last year and ... It HAD to go on the top!  With the white fluff adding the gorgeous dimension to it, it also looks to me like yummy fresh whipped cream on the top!   Only problem I had with this was my once all together cupcakes hid the fur and I had to show off the fur :( so .. I cut them up singularly and added them on. (It breaks slightly from the sketch).

The 3 falling round cherries make me just want to pick one of them right off along with a  cupcake  and start eating it all!  I added some sprinkles down the right hand side (experiment that went right!), they are a mix of beads mixed in with some glitter.

I coloured the images with my watercolour pencils – I added pink Kindy Glitz to the cupcakes tops, the cherry circle edges and cherry dots.  I added red Kindy Glitz to sections of the cherries and I added dimensional paint over the top of my cupcake bases to make them stand out and as it does makes them dimensional.

I really do just so love this card! All I can think of looking at it is pick a cupcake, grab a cherry, run the cupcake through the cream and pick up a handful of sprinkles for the top!

A huge thank you to Meljen’s Designs for both FREE images Reto Cherry and triple treat cupcakes.  Again I hope I did them justice – I sooo want some COPICS as watercolour just doesn’t give me the ‘bright’ I am always looking for.
