Cupcake Challenge #30
Wow! I can't believe that I was picked to be the featured Cupcake sampler this week for the Taylored Expressions Blog. It was such an honor and I really enjoyed doing this little number with all the circles. Great Design Taylor!
When I first saw the sketch, I stared at it for awhile and then it came to me... A cupcake study. My only problem was that I didn't have 8 little cupcake stamps. And once I have an idea in my head it's very hard to steer away from that idea. My philosophy is, if you don't have it then make it. That's just what I did for the cupcakes.
I wouldn't call myself a very good drawer and I prefer to use stamps when all possible, but these were very easy to draw. Simple and cute, that's about the extent of my drawing skills.
I hope you enjoy and have fun with yours.
To play along you can visit Taylor's blog for all the rules and details.
