Cupcake Inspirations #67

Another challenge that I've always bookmarked but never played along with is the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge. Always the yummiest looking cupcakes to gather your inspiration off of...yummy!

This week I loved the cupcakes~

Seriously, how totally cute are those? and those of you who have been reading me for a while know I have a new "thing" for mermaids! I had to join in on this fun challenge!


I just got my Sweet November mermaids so I had to ink up one of those!! I thought that Fathom Calmsea would work well since she had so many stars on her to go along with the starfish on the cupcakes. And Lio is just too cute! 

Lately I've been coloring the water with my copics on my mermaid cards but I thought I'd try sponging it today to see how it looked. It was so much fun to play around with the different colors of sponging!

For some "extras" I added a few bubbles with my Viva Decor Transparent Gloss Gel Pen, some sparkle with my stardust pen and also some sparkle to Lio with my Viva Decor Peridot Green Glitter Liner. For the stars I used my Viva Decor Holographic Glitter Liner. For her tail I used Creative Inspirations Paint in  Autumn Wheat.

Sweet card Danni. I used this image the other day and found it a bit too tall for my regular 5 1/2 x 5 1/2, so I made something else instead. However, seeing this cute card from you, maybe next time, I can try a card :o)
Thanks for sharing!
Hugs,
Cabio
