A sweet treat... 29

Hi! I had to take some time to catch up on some DT responsibilities so I had to put my paints and paintbrush aside until tonight! I'm currently taking an online oil painting workshop with one of my favorite artists Dreama Tolle Perry and this week's assignment was to paint cupcake :)
I'm learning so much about color values, contrast, transparent and opaque colors, etc...

I also took the time to create a Valentine's Day card using a fun banner die that I bought nearly a year ago and never used:

I'm linking my painting in the current Paint Party Friday linkup:
For card color inspiration, I joined along with the ColourQ colour challenge:
and for sketch inspiration, I joined along with the Freshly Made Sketches sketch challenge:

Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)

Great cupcake - I have absolutely zero talent that way. That's why I love cardmaking, artists create the art and I can just stamp it and color it! I love your card. Simple - yet so celebratory! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
