We have a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs Challenge Blog. It is a Photo Inspiration Challenge featuring the photo below to be used as inspiration.
I am using an image from our sponsor, Lemon Shortbread. I colored the images using Copic markers and Prisma color pencils. For the girl, I colored her like an Anime character with yellow hair. For her clothing, I colored it with the Hello Kitty Cafe color motif. The cupcakes were colored using the colors of the shake in the photo inspiration.
I partially die cut the image using the Pretty Pink Posh Windows Frame Die. This was a brave move in my part because I can easily go wrong here by putting the cutting plates incorrectly. I did have a boo-boo on the purple cupcake side but after giving that much time into coloring this image, I am going to move forward with the design.
I added details to the cut image. I added small dots of gold Nuvo Drops to the cupcake frosting using a pin. This allows you to control the amount of enamel accent you apply on your project. I just squirted a blob of Nuvo Drop on a scrap paper, picked it up with the tip of a needle, then applied it to the image. I also used the needle to apply red Stickles to the cherries. I added shimmer to the girl's clothing and hat using a clear Spetrum Noir Shimmer pen. I added a small die cut heart to the girl's hat, added shimmer to this, then applied Ranger Glossy Accents to it.
For the shaker window, I cut a frame using the two largest dies from the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle dies. I am using a Studio Calico 6x6 patterned paper. For the background, I cut a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" kraft colored cardstock. I am using a sentiment from a Hampton Arts Doodlebug stamp set. I am using the Misti Stamping tool for repeated stamping and embossing. I double embossed the sentiment using Wow! Rich Pale Gold embossing powder. I wasn't satisfied with the effect and I didn't want to pitch this panel, so for the last embossed layer, I used a red Ranger embossing powder. This created a customized metallic red sentiment which almost looked like a metal embellishment due to the repeated embossing.
To create the shaker panel, I adhered the digital image to the bottom portion of the rectangle frame. I adhered the clear plastic to the back of the frame. I adhered foam tapes to the back of the rectangle frame and the digital image. I added Doodlebug sequins to this well. I adhered the kraft cardstock onto this, creating the shaker card panel. This is adhered to a top folding note card. As a last finishing touch, I added shimmer to the window frame.
