EXPANDING MOUSSE, CHRISTMAS CUPCAKES & A NEW CHALLENGE AT MAWTT!

Good morning everyone....

Today is the start of a new challenge at MAWTT, our leader, the lovely Wendy, has set the challenge and this time it is for both teams, Teams A and B

Now whilst I'd checked what the challenge was (actually several times!) it wasn't until I came to load my contribution onto the MAWTT blog that, to my horror, I'd been, wrongly, reading the challenge!  What made it worse was that I've been so busy all week, especially yesterday, and wasn't able to add my contribution until about 20 minutes before my lift arrived.  Bear with me as I'm nearly getting to the point LOL.  I was reading the challenge as 'Anything But Christmas' and, as I'd been trying the 'expanding mousse' by Tonic, was quite happy to upload said mousse card, only to see, as plain as the nose on my face, that the challenge is 'Anything But A Card'!!  So this is why there is a 'photo of Christmas cupcakes that my friend had asked me to make and photos of a card

You can see what my teamies have made here:

#87 - Anything But A Card

Some of the ladies are also giving a prize too and Wendy is asking if anyone would like to join her design team.  Full details on the MAWTT blog

So, first things first, the cupcakes, they are chocolate cupcakes with a topping of chocolate ganache then decorated with fondant



I've had some Tonic expanding mousse for a while but only tried it yesterday.  I used a stencil by Clarity and generously added the mousse, the colour is 'hammered copper', to the leaves.  When you add heat the mousse bubbles up and gives a lovely texture 


I then added a little product to my glass mat and added water to the mousse to paint the leaves

I added small black dots around each outline and finished the card with the two sentiments by Creative Expressions


 You can see how textured it is on the photo above and below


This is what it looks like on black card and I used a white gel pen to add the faux stitching 

Until tomorrow....
