A grungy cupcake

Hello dear reader,

The other day a dear crafty friend of mine challenged me to make a card with a cupcake. I would get bonus credit if I made it grungy....
I stamped the cupcake on white card stock with embossing ink. I embossed it with Stampendous Frantage Shabby white embossing powder. I also sprinkled some on the rest of the paper. I heated it underneath to make sure the powder stayed put. I love the look of the frantage range.
After it cooled down I inked the card with old paper distress ink. Then I inked part of it with Brushed corduroy distress ink and finally with vintage photo, walnut stain and gathered twigs to get the "ombre" look. I added hints of colour with some adirondack acrylic paint. I stamped the sentiment on some other card stock amd cut it out and inked it with old paper distress ink and stuck it to the card with 3D foam. I distressed the edges and inked them with gathered twigs distress ink. Then stuck the whole thing on a beige card blank and this is the result....

Until next time, take care.
