Cupcakes ... Naughty or Nice?

Oh wow, we're half way through May already! Our weather has been beautiful this past week or more, lots of sunny sunshine!  A week of sunshine and no rain is always a bit of a shock to us in Northern Ireland ;)  So there's been some gardening done, some power hosing, a bit of tidying up and lots of washing (and a huge pile of un-ironed clothes LOL).

Anyway, this is my debut card as a DT member with Naughty or Nice and our theme for May is 'hello cupcake' ... basically show us your cupcake stamps and if it's a bit cheeky all the better ;)

For my card I've used an oldie stamp from Art Gone Wild.
I watercoloured the background and then splattered with matching paint - I love the effect of this colouring technique :)  
My image is popped up on dimensionals and then the icing/candles decoupaged.  I also added some Spectrum Noir clear sparkle to the icing.   A few sequins and a bit of bling and job done! 

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:


  1. And 'job done' beautifully too! I love the watercolour effect and your decoupage... It's a stunner, Jo x

  2. That's such a fun image, I wonder how many candles you can actually fit on a cupcake.... Cara x
