Greetings friends. Today's challenge is all about cake or any of your favorite desserts. For me, I absolutely adore this cupcake martini stamp and often use it for birthday cards.
To make today's card, I stamped the Birthday Martini E2282 onto white cardstock with black Versafine ink. I then colored it with watercolor pencils and softened the look with a Dove Blender pen. I edged the rim and sides of the martini with a light blue pencil to give the impression of it being made out of glass. To finish the card, I added some gold stardust pen to the candle flame.

I don't know about you, but I am both a coffee and tea-aholic. Yes, the caffeine can get you through the day, but they both just taste so good! I also love coffee and tea related items, so I really looked forward to this challenge. I can't wait to be inspired by the other designers.
To make my card, I started with kraft cardstock and created a background with Vintage Photo and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide inks. I started by rubbing the two colors of ink onto a craft mat and spritzed them wtih water. I then dabbed the kraft cardstock into the puddles of ink. Next, I dried the paper with a heat gun while randomly misting the paper with water. The extra water helped bring out the "oxide" look of the inks. Once I got the look I wanted, I stamped the Impression Obsession Coffee Ring image onto the background to give the background a coffee/distressed feel.
Here is a close up of the background:
To finish the card, I added the Happily Caffeinated sentiment and Coffee Pot images to my background using black Versafine ink.
