These sprinkler pictures are from this summer (yeah! Usually I'm a year or two behind) at my parent's house. I used the Imaginese papers and popsicle stamps. The title is made with one of my favorite fonts--fairy tale. It is a cuttlekids font and was very inexpensive. $17.99 regular retail, but I picked mine up when Michael's clearenced them out this winter.

I stalk the Taylored Expression blog fairly regularly. I've always wanted to try one of her cupcake challenges but every time I look at a sketch my creative mind shuts down. I gave this week's challenge a try. So here is my creation for Taylored Expression's Cupcake Challenge #28.
Card stock and stamp are from Stampin' Up!. The brass brad is from Hobby Lobby. The designer paper is by Making Memories. I used pink stardust pen to shade in the flowers on the stamp.

For this card I dusted off my prisma pencils and gamasol and worked on shading a bit. I have been on the fence about getting copics or some other kind of alcohol markers. However I still haven't perfected the colored pencils so I think for the time being I will concentrate on learning to shade well with the pencils before I invest the chunk of change that markers will cost me.
I'm not sure where the stamp came from, I received it in a RAK once. I stamped it with classic black. The "salt" is coarse glitter. The background is created on glossy card stock with sponged marigold morning, pumpkin pie and cranberry crisp inks.
