Vera Lane Studio: Caroline's Cupcakes


I'm showing a DT project for Vera Lane Studio today. 
The gorgeous Caroline's Cupcakes is a brand new release:

I made two cards:

The images were coloured with alcohol markers and pencils. Glitter and glossy accents were applied and, when fussy cut, they were applied on foam pads onto the backgrounds.

The backgrounds were made by stamping with an embossing folder. (Open your chosen folder, and ink with distress inks, then lightly spritz with water. Close the folder and run it through through the embossing machine.) Once dry, I sprayed the embossed card with Glimmer Mist to give it a lovely shimmery finish.  On the second card I swiped an ink pad over the raised embossed areas.

The backgrounds were matted onto coloured textured card and then onto charcoal-grey card.  The sentiments were cut into strips and inked, then glued directly onto the background.

These close up photos show the shimmer a little better:
