Flower Cupcake.....

The inspiration for today's card 
Although you don't have to use a cupcake...
It was the first thing I saw and thought they where so pretty.
The delicate colours also caught my eye.
This is my card....
The background has been water coloured using inks and acetate.
I popped on a flower stencil and spread clear embossing  paste over it to add some shine 
and detail without detracting from the delicate colours.
I wanted the die cut tag to be matt so I used white gesso through the stencil this time.
It just adds a subtle detail.
The cupcake was stamped, die cut and heat embossed in silver and white puff paint.
I coloured the small roses, added some wink of stella and popped them onto the cupcake.
I wanted the background and the cupcake to shine against the matt tag.
I finished off with a  Love sentiment stencil, some white opaque embossing paste, 
a hint of colour and wink of stella.
 Thank you so much for finding time to stop by.
