Girl On A Cupcake - Softpencil Thursday

Can I just tell you how much freakin' fun I had with this image!! The challenge was to use Girl on a Cupcake (A-dorable) along with shades of pink (my favorite color) and pearls (how classy)...all that equals one awesome card!

See isn't it AWESOME?? So what did I do to make it so awesome (LOL)? First I paper pieced the cupcake liner, her dress, her socks and her bows. Yes, they are pretty small pieces but I managed. I colored her skin and hair with my Copics. Then I added Liquid Applique to the cupcake. While it was still wet I sprinkled Ultra Fine Glitter on it - then I heat set it. The results...

are oh so cool! I added some pearls to the design which came from sketch SC274. Did you notice the little pearls on her bows...I know CA-ute, right?

I hope you've enjoyed my creation - if you'd like to get GIRL ON A CUPCAKE for yourself then head on over to the Softpencil blog! Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
