Cupcake Inspirations:: Surprise Sweetie

What a delight to be participating in the really fun Cupcake Inspiration Challenge again, this time as a Surprise Sweetie!

This week there is a really rich and regal cupcake to be inspired by! Aren't the colors gorgeous?
...midnight, gold and turquoise.

My creation started with a watercolor wash of turquoise paint onto watercolor paper. I then stamped in midnight ink flowers, leaves and a fun sentiment from Lil' Inker Design's Doodled Daisies Stamp Set. I then splattered the panel with some gold ink and added some gold Nuvo Drops to the centers of each flowers. I mounted the panel onto gold cardstock and then onto a white card base.

I hope you have a chance to play along this week. Serendipity Stamps is the sponsor!
