Cupcake Christmas

I don't get on all that well with digis, sometimes when I colour them in with Promarkers I end up with all the ink going grey and sludgy, and yet other times the print stays put and the images colour beautifully. And I'm sure I don't do anything differently!

Anyway, this image, called Cupcake Candycanes, from Bugaboo, seems to have been on its best behaviour when I coloured it, despite using non-traditional colours for the candy canes to match the non-festive backing paper I chose (from my trusty DCWV Stack 9 pad - how did I ever cope before I had that?)

I computer generated the sentiment, tweaking the RGB balance of the colour until I got a pretty much perfect match for my layering card. The gems are from the fab bargain bag I bought at the show yesterday.

I'm sharing this with

Another lovely card - you've certainly been very busy. Love this digi (I don't often use them either) but it looks great on your card.

the cupcake looks yummy and nicely coloured. I find the same thing with alcohol markers and digis. Thanks for joining us at Clear it Out Tuesday for the Food/plaid challenge.
