Whimsy - Ombre Cupcake

I'm posting another of the Whimsy October 2019 Retreat Make 'n' Takes I had done. I looooove this cupcake set--so many possibilities!

A list of supplies needed is at the bottom of this post.  Enjoy!
  1. Using Versamark, stamp your chosen cupcake randomly onto the card front with one centered in the upper half of the card. 
  2. Also stamp the sentiment onto black cardstock using Versamark.
  3. Heat emboss both with Ranger White Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder.
  4. Brush the card front lightly with water.
  5. Using a flat brush, apply Distress Oxide in broadstrokes, overlapping colors to create an ombre effect. Set aside to dry.  Once dry, spatter the card front with water if you like.

  6. Stamp your chosen cupcake onto the 3 x 3" square of watercolor cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black.
  7. Watercolor the cupcake using Distress Oxides.
  8. Once the image has dried, trim the excess cardstock from the cupcake image and adhere it over the centered cupcake image as shown.

  9. Die cut the sentiment using a Quick Strips oval.
  10. Die cut a Quick Strips flag banner from the strip of white cardstock. Cut it in half vertically.
  11. Adhere the card front to the card base.
  12. Adhere the flag banner, pulling out the two sides so it spans the card width.
  13. Adhere the sentiment oval over the flag banner, hiding the missing portion and creating a "belt."
I'll see you soon with another Whimsy card.  In the meantime, why don't you take a gander at the other goodies in the Whimsy shop and have a great rest of your day!
