his is the second of my new Verve stamps. The layout is this weeks sketch challenge in the Verve Forum at Splitcoaststampers. The twist this week is a Technique twist! You could chose one of two techniques , Poppin' Pastels or Burnt Batik. I chose the Poppin' Pastels to work with. There are step by step instructions in the forum. I used the Poppin Pastels technique to make my background paper behind the cupcake.
The stamp is "A Cupcake Affair". I cut it out and placed on the background paper. I added stickles to the frosting and rhinestones to the flowers. I used my sew machine to zig zag the edges and straight stitch around the middle panel. The edges are sponged with distress ink. The I added some lace and ribbon.
