It's time to cook!

Well, not really, but it is time to do a recipe challenge for the VCMP! These particular challenges always make me think and that's a good thing lol. Today our recipe is this:

1 image
2 patterned papers
3 words
 
Here is what I came up with for you:


What do you think? The DP are from a 6x6 Basic Grey pad. I love using those since the papers all work so well together. I made sure to use two that had some yellow in them to match my cupcake wrapper. For the cupcake frosting, I used Tulip Puffy Paint and after it got puffed it up, it was covered in Recollections glitter glue. This is my favorite type of glitter to use on anything. I've never had any problems with it rubbing off on my fingers when I test it for OWH. We don't want it coming off and ending up on a uniform.

The rest of the cupcake was colored with Copics and is a stamp from Make An Impression. The sentiment is from a Fiskars cling set. I really like the Fiskars theme sets lately. And this card happens to use sketch 73 over on the Stars & Stripes blog.

Now it's your turn to try the recipe. I have faith that you can do it! Give it a try and you might be surprised with how easy and fun it can be! Plus there's some blog candy at stake. I have a cute cupcake stamp set with some Tulip Puffy Paint so you can try making some puffy frosting. I also have a pad of 6x6 All is Bright by My Mind's Eye. One will be given away to a randomly chosen comment and one to a randomly chosen card.
 


 


So...are you ready to try your hand at a new recipe? Good luck!

Update: The blog candy winners will be chosen at 9pm Pacific time on Sunday, September 9.

  26. I love recipe challenges ... unfortunately, i'm under the weather and have no juice to pull everything out of storage to create (ya, i don't have a space to craft, I have to hall everything in the kitchen then put everything away again at the end)
    So i'll just be looking at what you all come up with and will bookmark ... This will be great inspiration for later ...
    Sincerely,
