BasicGrey Colour Combo & Cutting Cafe

Challenge 23 - Colour Combo

Well its time for another challenge over at BasicGrey and this time its a colour combo, we would like you to pick one of the following colour combos for your creations (Skin and white card colours are allowed too),

Pink and Green
Pink and Brown
Blue and Brown

So what are you waiting for, pick your favorite combo and get crafting :), but of course not to forget to use at least one item from BasicGrey on your creation...

Regina has very kindly offered one lucky winner , two downloads of your choice from her wonderful store, how fab is that ♥

We got the chance to use her amazing cupcake designs, I printed the cupcake out twice onto heavy weight cartridge, a mini cupcake, the sentiment and cherry. I have coloured using my copics, The cup case I have stamped BG Inspire heart stamps and shaded with distress inks using a mask over the cupcake top! For the shiny icing I have gone over the top with liquid applique and while still wet, sprinkled the top (the table, the carpet, my face & head, the whole room it seems) with sparkly glitter! The cherry I have coloured and cut out. The sentiment I have cut using circle and ribbon slider to create hole! The mini cupcake I thought would make a cute charm, so I coloured with copics and cut out! Then finished off with a good dollop of glossy accents and adhered to a brad through the ribbon!
