CIC #111 - Hello

Hi ya'll!

How has your weekend been?  I hope you've gotten lots of crafty stuff done.  It's Sunday, which brings us to another Cupcake Inspiration challenge.  This week we have another fantastic sponsor. 

Robyn's Fetish has some super digital images and a great online store.  We were lucky enough to get to use some of their images on our projects this week and I just adored them.  You should head over and check them out.  I think you'll like what you see.

I absolutely love this weeks inspiration photo.  It's got some of my favorite colors and it's all around just a cute set of photos to work with.  For this weeks challenge, click HERE.

See, it's it just adorable?!  Love the birds and the cute cupcakes.  All around it's just a great photo.  Here is what I did with it.

Ok, so let me tell you.  Stitching on an embossed piece of paper is more than tricky.  I hadn't used my sewing machine in over a year and a half, or more, so I wanted to make sure I started using it again.  I think I'll have to keep practicing as it looks a bit rough, but it works witht he embossing, so I didn't change it.  I used A Little Birdie Told Me from Robyn's Fetish, and for some added dimension, I cut out the feathers on his wings and "ruffled" them up a bit so they looked more real.  I also popped up the centers in the flowers and gave them some sparkle.  I think it's cute, and simple. 

I hope you'll head over to see what amazing projects are posted by the other Sweeties today.  They're always so awesome!

Have a great day!

Aw, how cute Stephanie. I really like how you popped up his wing and those flowers. I bought a sewing machine a few months ago and have YET to do anything with it. I think it looks great with your embossed background. Love the colors, too! I may have to play along with this challenge.
