Small scale creativiy - Gio

Honey, I shrunk the samples!
Yup, this week, we are downsizing big time. The DT has been working on really small samples, hence the title for this week: Small Scale Creativity.
I have been wowed with the DT's samples once again, and I hope you will like them too. 

We start with Gio and a lovely mini teeny album she made with the Crafty Individuals cupcake stamps and Grungepaper. Isn't it adorable?  

I stamped the cupcakes several times using CI-374 - Hello cupcakes on a piece of Ranger Grunge Paper. I cut them out. I painted them using several shade of Fresco Finish paints. Once dry. I cut some pictures to size  and I glued to the little cupcakes. 
For the cover : I stamped the cupcake using CI-374 - Hello cupcakes on a piece of Ranger Specialty Paper, I coloured it with Distress inks, then I covered some areas with several colours of glitter.
For the embellishments: I stamped once the cupcake on a piece of White Shrink Plastic. I coloured it with Distress Inks, cut it out and shrank it with the heat gun. 
I added some glass beads to two metallic head pins. I made a hole through all the cupcakes and I slipped a piece of chain to which I linked the embellishments.

For the cupcakes stand: I printed the template, I adhered to a piece of grunge paper and I cut it out. I covered every piece with Gesso, then I painted using Fresco Finish paints Nougat and Beach Hut. I stamped it using Artemio clear stamps: Paisley and Black Jet Archival ink. 
I added some orange glitter all along the borders. 
I assembled with glue.

See you tomorrow
