Today I received in the mail a cute little CC Designs stamp, so decided to use her (Cupcake Kiki) on a card for this week's Curtain Call Colour Challenge.  These are the colours that Stacey is challenging us to use on a papercraft project:

Here is the result of my play session, with Cupcake Kiki and my Prismacolor pencils (blended with odourless mineral spirits):

Sorry about the wonky photo; I think my head was screwed on crooked when I took it!  After colouring the image with my pencils, I used my Sakura Gelly Roll silver pen to highlight the flower centre, and the creases on the cupcake case.  I added Crystal Effects to Kiki's shoes, the cupcake icing (which was then sprinkled with pink super-fine glitter), and the flower in her hair.  She looks very sweet in real life, even if the details aren't really clear in my photo.

These are the ingredients I used to make this card:

Stamps: Cupcake Kiki (CC Designs), Tiny Tags
Card: Basic Gray, Cajun Craze,  X-Press It Copic blending card
Ink: Memento black inkpad, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Gray and Cajun Craze stampin' pads
Other: Prismacolor pencils, odourless mineral spirits, Crystal Effects, Sakura Gelly Roll silver pen, pink super-fine glitter, pink rhinestones, oval and scalloped oval Nestabilities, Medium Jewelry Tag punch, Whisper White satin ribbon, Basic Gray taffeta ribbon (retired), Pretty in Pink 1/8" taffeta ribbon, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Big Shot, sponge dauber
