Fifty Shades of Cupcakes!!!

It’s CAKE time!! I saw a color challenge that I couldn’t pass up at Dynamic Duos and an adorable sketch challenge over at The Sweet Stop.  I decided to do a cool technique on this card as well for good measure.
To see how to color and shade with your markers check out my FACEBOOK page, the tutorial is HERE.  I used this neat technique with my Big Shot and my stripes embossing folder to create the GINGHAM EFFECT on the background layer.  It is SUPER easy~
  • First you cover one side of your embossing folder with ink, then lay your paper inside the folder- close and run through your machine.
  • Second step, once your first set of lines are on your card stock you then re-ink your strips embossing folder (you can use different inks like me, or the same color as the first lines you created), and follow step one again.
That’s IT!! Easy Peasy!! I love that effect!
