Today I have a little tutorial for you that I will be sharing over at Bella and Bronte's Clubhouse on FB. It's super simple and probably something that you've seen a million times, but Mo has SOOOO many cute images with cakes and cupcakes on them that you could easily apply this technique to and spice up your card a bit.
I'm starting with the adorable Cupcake Hamster and coloring him/her with Copics.

cupcake Y11, Y21, YR21, YR23
cupcake liner BG000, BG01, BG02, BG05
Once I finished coloring my image I decided what color "icing" I wanted for my cupcake and grabbed some Worn Lipstick Distress ink, embossing paste, and a palette knife.
I gave my Distress ink pad a good smoosh on my craft sheet and then added a scoop of embossing paste to it. (This was a bigger scoop than was needed).
Begin working the ink and paste together until you get..............
THIS! Doesn't it look like the most delicious decadent icing!
I applied most of it with the palette knife and then used a toothpick to get into the nooks and crannies.
The image has sprinkles on it and I decided to add those with some dots of gold paint. You could use beads (I couldn't find mine), sequins, pearls or whatever to decorate your cupcake or even just leave it plain. I just love the added texture and how real it looks.
And here's my finished card. A CAS design with a bit of washi tape and a few sequins to bling it up.
Hope you enjoyed the tute. Nothing earth shattering, but maybe it will inspire you to add a bit of texture for fun next time you use one of Mo's cake/cupcake images.
Have an awesome day!
