PAPER PUMPKIN - May - As Is and Twist

I apologize for not getting the As Is posted yesterday. My day job task took longer than I'd anticipated. So today I am posting both.

I loved this kit. Seriously, who doesn't LOVE donuts! And what a great way to send a calorie-FREE sweet message to someone?

Here are the As Is that I played with:

Sprinkled with Love

Flower Happy

I used the reinkers and my water brush to color in the flowers from the kit.
I put a drop in the pallet the squirted some water from my brush until I got a shade I liked.
TIP: Stamp your center of the flower first. 
I chose to brush from the outside edge of the petals towards the center 
giving a more pronounced edge
I used Pool Party, only to discover it was a bit more aqua than I wanted.

With A Twist: 
I knew I wanted to take a bite out of this frosted donut. I don't have our scalloped edge circles yet so I used my punch from The Paper Studio to take give the bite marks. I hope the person getting this card doesn't mind. ;-)

I trimmed one of the deli bags (included in the kit) down to a 4 x 5.25 leaving the decorative edge in place then mounted it on a Watermelon Wonder card base.

For the second twist, I cut out a slightly larger circle from Blushing Bride to mount the Very Vanilla icing on. Then topped that with the icing drizzle from the kit. These stickers were so much fun! And added a realism to the card. I might need to order an extra kit just to have these to play with.

I cut the donut down a bit as well as the deli bag front so it appears as if the donut is coming out of the bag. To position the flower just right see the photo below:

I cut a small triangle of dimensional and placed it on the banner where I wanted to position the flower. This allowed me to position the flower just right without covering up too much of the sentiment.
