Love You To Pieces

Hiya!!

Today i'm sharing a card i made for a brand spanking new challenge: Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers! My friend Jessi is on the design team and makes the best snarky cards ever!! The first challenge is A is for Anti-Valentines!


So i made a card that i think would qualify at least for a non traditional valentine's!  It all started with the Love You To Pieces from The Alley Way Stamps In Stitches stamp set. It got me thinking about about pieces of cupcakes or chocolate, so i went searching through my TAWS stamps for a cupcake!!

First i stamped and masked it on some watercolor paper and cut it out. I used a small (3/4 i think) circle punch to take the "bites" out of the cupcake. I like how it looked so then i colored the cupcake with distress markers.

When i was placing the cupcake on my card base and contemplating the layout i thought my card base was to plain. So i found a big die cut heart and used some Fine Linen distress ink to ink around the heart. When i went to take a picture of it later, i realized its really, really light, but by then the sentiment was stamped and the cupcake adhered, so watch-a-gonna do?!?! :D

Thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope you'll take some time and play along over at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge!
