Party Hearty

Okay, so I got my Liquid Applique in the mail today. I have been wanting this stuff forever so I could use it on some of my fun cupcakes! I had a heck of a time finding it. Apparently no one in town carries it, and doesn't even know what it is!! So, I found it online and thought it was an excuse to buy some more yarn to get free shipping.....I had to break it out tonight and try to see if it is as cool as I thought it would be. Whatcha think?

I also decided to do a Sketch Challenge over at http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/. Makes me think outside my normal box and do different layouts. Try it if you are looking to break out!

I first stamped my cupcake image onto paper, and then covered the 'frosting' part of the cupcake with the liquid applique. To set the applique, give er a blast with the heatgun until it gets frothy. I then added some black Chunky Essentials glitter as the cupcake wrapper. Who doesn't like a little glitter when it comes to cupcakes? :)

Here is a close up shot of the cupcake to see how the liquid applique turned out:
