Fab'n'Funky Challenges #123 - Celebrations

Hi Everyone,

Great entries last week for our new beginning and I even managed to leave a comment for every one of you!  Phew!  We had such a good variety but I have a feeling there may be a baby boom going on!  Check out the Fab'n'Funky Challenges blog to see if I picked you for my Top 3 and also to find out who won the crafty prize from Di's Digi Downloads, picked at random.  Don't forget to collect your badges too.

The fabulous Wendy is your host for this week and she has chosen a great challenge...


What will you be celebrating next?  Our fab sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen and the random winner of the challenge will win a £10 gift voucher to spend in her online store. 

I was having a nose around Mo Manning's Digital Pencil site and came across this cupcake wonder and couldn't resist adding her to my stash, along with a few other delights!

The purple base is Cor'dinations cardstock and I've distressed the edges with the Tim Holtz paper distresser tool.  The yellow paper originally came from eBay ages ago.  I also embossed a piece of the Cor'dinations with my Crafts Too embossing folder which I picked up at the SECC earlier this year.  I sanded the top layer back to reveal the core.  The baker's twine was wrapped around and secured with super sticky tape and mounted with foam pads. 

I coloured my image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers in the following colours:

Light Fawn
Sunkissed Pink
Pink Lavender
Pink Pearl
Wild Orchid

I added some glitter to the ruffles in her dress with my Quickie Glue Pen and MCS glitter.  I simply used the yellow and Wild Orchid pens to add the dots around the image.  I think the sentiment is from Wild Rose Studio but it is another that has been in my stash for a while and I'm not quite sure where I got it.  I used Spellbinders Labels Twenty Five to cut the topper and sentiment out with my Grand Calibur.

Looking forward to your celebratory projects this week.  Have a good one.

Happy crafting.
