Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #348

how exciting is this: Newton's Nook Designs is sponsoring the new Cupcake Inspirations Challenge

i just LOVE these colors! they're totally 'me'! :)
i decided to use the AMAZING Message In a Bottle stamp set and coordinating die

i colored the ship image with copics, and die cut the bottle out of vellum!
on my card base, i stamped the bottle image and the ship image again then adhered, first the ship pieces and then the vellum on top! :)

i stamped the bird images on top of the vellum and then added some wood veneer sequins! i added a green color to the sequins with Distress Paints in Cracked Pistachio and Mowed Lawn! then i added a layer of glitter on top! :)

the background was created with Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass! i just smooshed the ink pads onto my craft mat, spritzed with water and then placed my card base on top! so easy, and so fun! love the watercolor look with the ship!! perfect!

i hope you have time to play along with the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge for your chance to win some Newton's Nook stamps! :)
