Fairy Cupcakes

Hi Everyone....................hope you are enjoying your Sunday whatever you are up to. THanks for dropping in to view the latest post here at Curious N Crafty Treasures.

Below is a birthday tag for my son's girlfriend. She is very girly and loves  pink and sparkles, which is not something that comes easy to me, but the lovely  'Fairy Sweets' stamp set  from Oxford Impressions fitted the bill perfectly x  There are so many wonderful elements in this set to play with and you will definitely see it again

The tag is a size 10 and was inked using Victorian Velvet DI, edged with Tea Dye DI

You can see all of the main elements below, which were edged with DI or Distress marker to take away the white edge

The papers were from some of the many that I have in my stash. They are from a 6 by 6 pad by K& Co

The edges were distressed and then blended with Tea Dye DI ( Another project without Vintage Photo !!!!) 

The papers were layered and adhered with tape and some hand dyed lace was adhered with Ranger Wonder Tape

I took a piece of twine and to prevent it fraying used some glue. I then adhered it to the candle to look like the wick. I cut a slit in the cupcake and put the bottom of the stamped candle through. 

The candle and bird are from the Fairy Sweets Stamp set too.

I sprayed Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist in mint and pink gumballs to the cupcake wrapper, lace and fairy wings.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and have a lovely week.

Catch up soon

    You clever thing using string to create the candle wick.
    Although the colours are sweet I like your touch, making them distressed and with a hint of vintage.
