...Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #64

This is my submission for this week's Taylored Expression's Cupcake Challenge #64. I started with a Kraft Cardstock base, then matted each additional layer with a combination of Kraft and Basic Black Cardstock. The patterned papers are from the Urban Oasis Designer Series Paper pack, and the large panel was pierced using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. The images and sentiment were from the set "Down By The Pond" by The Greeting Farm. They were stamped in Basic Black Craft Ink on Watercolor Paper, embossed with Clear Embossing Powder, then colored with an Aquapainter and Classic Ink Pads. I created the scene with Copic Sketch Markers and a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker, then sponged the sky in Bashful Blue Classic Ink. The embellishments include a Silver Swirl Clip, a Kiwi Kiss Button from the Button Bouquet collection, a piece of 5/8" Light Turquoise Ribbon, and some Silver Cording.

That's it for today! I am at a stamping retreat with three other wonderful women {HI, FRAN!!!}, so I will be making several cards over the span of the next two days...hopefully! LOL! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you tomorrow with another creation. Until then...
