Yum, Yum

I have so much decorative paper I thought I better use some to make room for new! I'm just waiting for the Slab to come out with a new design, I find the Slab the most economical and you get so much paper. For this card I used my new Hero Arts clear set and inked it with black VersaFine which comes right off the stamps without staining as long as you clean them right away. When you use VersaFine be sure to heat set the ink so it doesn't smear. I then watercolored the cupcake using watercolor pencils, added glitter to the frosting with two way glue and then applied Crystal Lacquer to the flower to add shine.
Wow is it windy! One of our decorative shutters blew off the house last night and boy was I surprised to fine out that it's made out of plastic, who knew! So now it needs to be replaced rather than repaired and I have now idea where to get one that will match, this will really cut into my stamping time :( So I better go and get started.
Recipe
Stamps- Hero Arts
Ink- black VersaMark
Paper- The Slab, black and white cardstock
Plus- SU ticket punch, SU photo corner punch, circle stickers by Stampendous, ribbon, glitter, Crystal Lacquer
