Cupcake Challenge 175

Hello everyone, over on Cupcake Challenge 175 we have a theme of winter birthday and this week I have made a very quick one layer card. This week we are sponsored by My Mum's Craft Shop who are kindly giving us a £10 gift voucher as a prize.

For my card I tried a technique that I had never done before, but had wanted to try for a while.....I masked off my card base and sponged ink directly onto it. First I used spun sugar then added a little worn lipstick to the edges for a bit of depth. I really like the effect but I think I need a bit more practice to get it to look sharper......this was my second attempt, the positioning of my masks wasn't so good on my first one!!! I then used a snowflake from my WMS seasons of love set and stamped it using spun sugar. I finished off with the sentiment, also from WMS fancy phrases set.....and that's it!!

Card/Paper: Pearlised white card
Stamps: WMS - Seasons of Love, Fancy Phrases
Ink: Distress inks - spun sugar, worn lipstick
Tools: TH blending tool
Thanks for looking x
