TCP Tuesday-The Icing on my Cupcake

The theme for this month’s TCP Tuesday challenge is paper piecing. Paper piecing is one of my favorite ways to quickly add colors and patterns to a line art image.

For this card, I used one of the big eared bunny sets from last month’s release along with the current Deconstructed Sketch. I used the piece of dotted paper that covers most of the cardfront as my color inspiration for the design.

I colored the bunny and cupcake top with Copic markers, then paper pieced the cupcake wrapper. I used a piece of blue dotted paper from the same paper collection as the larger scale dotted pattern to give the wrapper a fun pattern. To add depth to the paper, I used a coordinating Copic marker to do some shading on the wrapper. The finished image is adhered to the cardfront with dimensional dots. I used Liquid Pearls to add the sprinkles on the top of the cupcake.
