Seize the Birthday Guest Designer Part 4


I'm back for my fourth challenge as Surprise Party Guest at Seize the Birthday.


As usual you can make any kind of birthday card and join the Anything Goes portion of the challenge or you can play along with our Topping which this week is Rainbow Colours!. 


I think this might be the first time I've inked up this Essentials by Ellen set.  I originally considered creating rainbow icing for the cupcake but then I decided to flip things around and put the rainbow in the background using the sprinkle stamp with Catherine Pooler inks.  I first stamped the cupcake in a soft grey but it felt a little wishy washy so I used black ink and now it really pops off the rainbow!

I hope you'll join in the fun!  You have until 9am (PST) on Tuesday, 25 August to play along.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Bermuda Bay) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Cupcake and sprinkles from Sweet Sprinkles, Sentiment from Latte Love) Essentials by Ellen
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Party Dress, Tutti Frutti, Tiki Torch, Tiara, Lime Rickey, Aquatini, Flirty Fuscia) Catherine Pooler
Die:  (Flag) My Favourite Things
Other:  (Nuvo Oyster Grey Crystal Drops) Tonic

Rainbow sprinkles are perfect! And great choice to have that cupcake front and centre in black. Fun!

A rainbow icing would have looked yummy, but I love how you decided to do with our topping! The rainbow confetti is so cheerful and the black cupcake makes a cool contrast to the colorful background!

Rainbow sprinkles are my favorite to put on soft serve vanilla ice cream and your sprinkle rainbow background has me craving some of that right about now! This card is very eye-catching and the black was a great idea for the cupcake! It really does pop off the background! Take care!
