Cupcakes Gone Berserk

Welcome to the Guild Hall. We are all busy preparing for the guests to arrive for my nameday celebration tonight. The Lady Commander of Copics was charged with baking cupcakes in the kitchens, a quest I thought she would be able to complete. Unfortunately that was not the case. I was just finishing hanging the last of the streamers when I heard screams coming from the kitchens. A house gnome ran past me shouting “THEY’RE ALIVE!! THE CUPCAKES ARE ALIVE!!” This wasn’t good...

This ATC was created for the Just Some Lines February challenge that is happening now. Our theme this month is hearts and love. Come play along using a Just Some Lines image for your chance to win!

I started by colouring one of the Just Some Lines “3 Wacky Cupcakes From Hell” using Prismacolor pencils. Because my background was a little busy I decided to mount the cupcake on some black paper and create a “shadow” border so it stood out better. This earned me +666 shadow magic XP points. I also mounted it on SUUUUPA POP DOTS so it literally stood out...or off...whatever.

This ATC will go crazy in the following challenges:

It would appear that my sister decided to bake without wearing her glasses and instead of adding baking powder added berserker pulverulence (why do we keep those jars right next to each other??), giving a life force to the cupcakes and causing them to go insane. When I entered the kitchens the first dozen of them were jumping around making “nom nom nom” sounds while the house gnomes and the Lady Commander were cowering behind an overturned table. Sighing I downed a mana potion and got to work undoing the accidental magic my sister had performed.

What a great interpretation of our "Love Notes" theme! The maniacal look on the cupcake's face matches so perfectly with your sentiment! Great coloring job, too, and I thought it was brilliant of you to give the cupcake a "shadow background." I would've never thought to do that! This ATC was both whimsical and sophisticated and I enjoyed your witty write-up, too. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
