Holly Cupcake and Blog Candy!
I was cleaning up in my studio tonight, and this holly cupcake stamp was calling my name. It was fate that I just happened to have AmyR's latest sketch on my table - it is perfect for this stamp!
I inked this up with Brilliance Graphite Black ink, let it dry, and then colored it with Copics. I went back over some of the leaves and the berries, as well as the cupcake liner with my Gold Spica glitter pen. Ohhhhh, I love the glitter........ Here is a close up:
I only used 4 Copic markers on this card - quick and easy. Here's a picture of the colors I used:
