It is time for another Design Team Challenge/Sneak Peek. This time the theme is....birthdays! The image I chose was a winter 2009 release rather than a CHA release. However, I have been dying to play with this stamp and seized the opportunity.
To make the card, I stamped the cupcake martini onto white cardstock using black Versafine ink and colored it with a variety of colored pencils. I then layered the martini onto some paper from Basic Grey's Bittersweet collection.
Here is a close up of the martini so that you can see how I colored the drink and the cupcakes:
I decided to color the base of the drink a bit darker than the top because I imagined the liqueur would sink the bottom of the glass. I then colored the rim of the glass with a light blue pencil so that it would match the blue in the patterned paper and so that it would stand out from the white of the cardstock.
Here is a close up of the bottom of the glass so you can see how I shaded the base with grey pencils to create a shadow:
