Creative Crew - February Color Focus

Join us for this months Creative Crew Challenges. here's the info for the color focus challenge:

CCREW0212DF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM -- DSP/Color Focus: Twitterpated DSP has me, well, twitterpated! This month, use Twitterpated DSP on your project. Haven't gotten it yet? Use the colors: Pear Pizzazz, Basic Gray, Island Indigo, Riding Hood Red, Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze, Whisper White, or any combination of them.

I love love this stamp set Sweet Cake .... who doesn't love cupcakes?! The challenge was to use the twitterpatted DSP which is one of the few things I did not order so instead I went with some of the individual color; Island Indigo, Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze. This card if fun and I used lots of different textures! The base is embossed with Perfect Polka Dots EF, the Island Indigo piece is embossed with the Stripes EF, the cupcake cup is done using the paper crimper and the white piece I used the Oval shaped Designer Frame. I used my marker to darken the raised edges of the designer frame. To give the cupcake color I stamped it with blushing bride then watercolored inside the lines with my blushing bride marker and then I embossed it with clear embossing powder. I ran my marker along the crimped edges on the cupcake cup to give it dimension. Layered it all together added a bow and topped it off with some twitterpatted buttons and a rhinstone brad without the brad part. Happy Stamping!!
