Close up of some of the details in this piece, notice the permanent black marker used to make lines, and dots on the cupcake, also the candle lines.
Step 20 - Paint in the candle and the flame.
Step 19 - Paint over the black letters with iridescent purple. Add glitter to the background.
Step 18 - Tear off a scrap of decorative paper which is not to thick and using gel medium paste it in at the left hand side of your picture. I also stamped Happy Birthday onto tissue.
