Really, Really Hungry!

Hello again!  Thank you for joining me for another card using products from The Project Bin.  The sentiment on this card is hilarious!  We all know what it feels like to be REALLY REALLY hungry.  I don't know about you, but I get quite "hangry"!

Today's card features one of my "go-to" techniques, creating backgrounds. I have piles and piles of backgrounds that I've made just waiting to be turned into cards.  Maybe that's actually an achievable New Year's resolution???  We shall see.....

 I began by stamping the sentiment in the center of the card using black ink.  Then, I randomly stamped the cupcakes.  I used only the cupcake part of the sentiment.  (I didn't use the "U >").  When it came time to choose colors, I knew I wanted it to be a "fun" card, so of course I had to go with a rainbow color palette.  I always seem to gravitate toward bright, bold colors anyway, so there is no surprise there!  After all the cupcakes were colored (with Copic markers), I wanted to add "just a little extra something", so I drew polka dots, using a white gel pen, on the frosting part of each cupcake.  I love how this turned out.  For the finishing touch, I added Glossy Accents to the cherries, oops I mean hearts, on each cupcake.

The sentiment on the card seemed like it was getting a little lost, so I white heat embossed part of the sentiment onto black card stock.  This definitely helped to highlight the sentiment, but it also accentuated the fact that said person is REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY hungry!!!! LoL!

Thank you for stopping by!
