Carnival Cupcakes

Happy Monday, my friends! =) I am sharing a card made using a combination of stamps and dies from Mama Elephant and Paper Smooches.

I did the fun ink smooshing technique for the background with Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn and Squeezed Lemonade distress inks. You can see a video of how it's done here by the fabulous Laura Bassen and here is another one (this is the method that I used) by the amazing Betsy Veldman.

Mr. Bear Cupcake is from Mama Elephant's Carnival Cupcakes set. They are stamped with Antique Linen distress ink and colored with Copic markers for the no-line coloring look.

The background piece is die cut using a die from Mama Elephant's Landscape Trio die set and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches Sugar Rush set.
