Crafty Boots - Sweet Treats

Welcome to another Crafty Boots challenge - this time the theme is picked by Lisette

She would like you to show us sweet treats - cakes, cupcakes, lollipops, gingerbread... I freely admit this isn't my normal sort of style, but as luck would have it, Jo Firth-Young has just launched some more stamps with Paperartsy - and one of them is a cupcake.... how well timed is that, and more so that I grabbed on at Ally Pally last week....

A quick, simple card from me as I have been away this weekend just gone, and had very little time!

I painted some Sherbert Fresco paint on some white card, and stamped the image onto it with black archival ink... To make the icing on the cupcake white again, I used my white Sharpie pen.  Trimmed it and mounted it on a card blank.

Stop by and see what the other girls have done, and we look forward to seeing your sweet treats!

Sherbert Fresco was an inspired choice of colour for a cupcake design, the combination is making me feel 'peckish'

Fab CAS card.

Hands up this is a bit of a copy/pasty Helen, hands not playing the game on the computer at the moment, but wanted to pop in and say hello and as always a lovely work.
