It's been three weeks since my last post, but normal everyday life seems to be getting in the way of crafting! I don't know how some of you ladies manage to post so often even when you have a full time job.
Anyway, when I saw the lovely picture of decorated cupcakes at In the Pink I thought it would give me an excuse to use my Mama Elephant Carnival Cupcakes set which hasn't been out of the packet yet.
I stamped the cupcake bases with a pearlescent ink and the tops with Memento London Fog so it didn't look so harsh. All colouring was done with Copics and then the cupcakes were glittered, the cherry had a glossy accents job and the yellow bows given the wink of stella treatment. I had a problem of where to put the sentiment that goes with the Carnival toppers stamp set as it didn't seem to fit anywhere so I stamped a smaller one onto vellum and placed it at the top. I normally like a few more embellishments, but with so much pink about I thought I'd leave it as is.
Hope you like.
