Magnolia Down Under Challenge #8

Hello fellow stampers and bloggers! Hope you're all doing very well by the grace and love of our Lord Jesus. Today I want to share with you my card for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge. The theme for challenge #8 is .... CUPCAKE! (yum! one of my favs!)

I do not have the Tilda with cupcake and as I've mentioned before, I only have 1 Tilda stamp and that is Giggling Tilda (atm....hoping I could have more in the future). So, I browsed on my stamped Tildas (which I received as RAKs from my online pals) and improvised a card that incorporates a cupcake with Tilda. And here's my finished card:

The second photo below is a shot with some of the embellishments/accessories I used.

I coloured Tilda with Prismacolor pecils and odourless solvent. This is originally Tilda Holding Rose. After colouring Tilda, I cut it out and cut the flower part and just left the stem. I then used my Rectangle Nestabilities (which I purchased from BizzyBecs) to cut a piece of Whisper White cs, sponged it with Versacolor while still in the dies then adhered Tilda there. I then stamped the Hero Arts Cupcake onto the lefover cs where the Tilda image came from (now that's frugal cardmaking, lol!). I coloured it with Prisma pencils as well and then embellish it with Copic Spica glitter pen, Dimensional Magic and Glitter Marker (for the cherry) then adhere it on the area replacing the flower that I cut. I then matted the white cs onto a Creamy Caramel die-cut in Scalloped Rectangle Nesties. I used my Cotton Candy Stickles for Tilda's wings and finished off the card with some dew drops for the horizontal panels. I also did some paper piercing onto the Creamy Caramel horizontal panels.

I really like the outcome of the card in general and the cupcake with Dimensional Magic on the frosting plus the glittery cherry!

Hope this one will somehow pass the challenge set by Kellie. Did you know what my eldest son said upon seeing this card? "Mum is she going to a marshmallow party?" LOL!!!!
