FosterDesignHouse: first TECC...

Ok, so the fur-babies woke me up at 6:45am today! Yeah, on a holiday weekend... CRAZY, I know... their little internal clocks need a snooze button :)

With this extended weekend and the house to myself, I've been able to actually participate in a couple of blog challenges! This one is for Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #69.

Once again, I grabbed this TAC stamp set that is no longer available... I can't help it... it's so cute! I used my trusty color pencils & mineral oil blending for the cuppie cake and paper pieced the holder.

Stamps: Sweet Thing (NLA), Linear Sentiments (dot border)
Colorant: Prismacolor Pencils with mineral oil blending
Other: Lime & Icicle Stickles, misc. ribbon & buttons, Pink Scrapper's Floss, White Gel Pen, foam tape

I had fun cutting and popping up several layers of the cuppie cake... the entire card front is up off the base as well. The white gel pen highlights the leaves & the pistols. I'm diggin' the huge bow, however the buttons are making the whole upper corner a bit weighty...



What do you think?
