Welcome to day two featuring the Hero Arts cupcake stamp from the Happy Birthday Cupcakes set. Today I oped to use the stamp as a background. This is one of my favorite techniques to do with any stamp. All it requires is a little patience to get the perfect placement. I like to use my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to get it lined up right every time.
I stamped the image over and over using Versamark Ink. I then colored in the hearts with Copic marker R36. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark as well and distressed the edges a bit with the Tonic distress tool. A pretty simple card, but still packs a big punch. It would be perfect for a Valentine's Day card or just to give to someone you think is sweet. ;-)
Two more cards featuring the cupcake are on their way, so be sure to check back tomorrow!
I am feeling SUPER rushed at work today. I took off time yesterday, and I am paying for it today. Turns out newspaper deadlines don't go away — even for the holiday weekend!
