Wild Birthday at the OSCC

Time for another One Stop Craft Challenge ~ WAHOO! Lisa’s celebrating her birthday this week and is challenging us to make birthday cards WITH cake on them. The DT had fun with images from the challenge sponsor, Sassy Studios Designs. I hope you can join in the fun!

Sketch Inspiration ~ Midnight Madness Sketch #91
WAHOOOO! I did the current challenge on time ~ are you proud of me MMSC DT? :o) I did a mash-up of the two sketches.

My Creation

Image Detail
Lots of sparkle and shine IRL. I used Stickles for glitterly sparkle and opted for Sepia Accents instead of Glossy Glaze for shine. The brownish-red color adds richness to my girls tresses and the cupcake frosting.
 This close up shows the Stickles (applied first) in her hair. I added the Sepia Accents right over the top, no need to wait for the Stickles to dry first. Her arm and body are popped up a bit for dimension.
Tip: When working with digis, print 2 images the same size. I use one for 'practice' coloring and will often opt to cut the second image into sections and add layers to the main image or use them for continued decoration inside the card.
