Hello Everyone and welcome to another Copic Oz Tutorial! Today I'm going to use Flourishes new Pinwheels and Popsicles stamp set to create Cupcake Toppers!! Such fab projects to add a splash of fun to any celebration!!
Firstly I've started by stamping the ice-cream in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and laid down a base colour of E50.
Deepen the shading with RV04 and lightly blend with RV02 and RV00.
For your yummy cherry on top, start with a base of R32.
For more contrast add some R39 and lightly blend with R37, R35 and R32! I don't blend my reds until I've laid down all the colours. Reds have a tendency to bleed, so I find it's better to leave the blending until the end. If you do find the colours start to bleed, at least with this image I'm going to cut it out for the finished project! ;-)
So now that we have a fabulously sweet strawberry ice-cream, what are we going to do with it?? Cut it out, grab a toothpick and a couple of notched tags the same size!
Stamp the sentiment from Flourishes' Pinwheels and Popsicles onto one and the glue the two tags together with the toothpick in between. A strong glue like X-press It Clear Gel Glue is perfect! Fussy cut the ice-cream you've coloured and pop it up on X-press It Foam Tape!
I hope you've enjoyed today's tutorial, thanks for visiting and happy colouring!!
