DRS Designs Color Throwdown

how's that go day late and a $ short well I am several days actually...I find time to make stuff but then it seems it is always past the upload and share by date it seems! I am going to have to work on that (see me adding it to my list of other things to work on too! IT IS A LONG LIST!)

This was the color throwdown from DRS last week and I used their cupcake image (E463)to make a small 3x3 card to use with a gift when giving to someone. I did a bit of paper piecing for the cupcake liner with the same paper I used to layer on which is a piece of handmade shaving cream background. I love this technique :) Fun, a little messy and NO 2 pieces come out the same! Makes for great quick backgrounds. I colored with Copic Markers, added some 3D Crystal Lacquer to the cherry and then mounted it on a scalloped circle added a bit of ribbon and taped it all together!

Don't forget to join me tomorrow starting at 10 AM for the FCD Blog Hop!

I love the colors for this one and I have only done the shaving cream background once, but it was a blast!

I really like the lacquer on the cherry ... it looks juicy and really summery!
