Birthdays with Sushi Dolls Abby Cupcake

Happy Sunday. Today I'm sharing a little project I created with the adorable Abby Cupcake digi from the Sushi Dolls Collection. I discovered the sweet Sushi Dolls images while surfing YouTube during my lunch break one day. Naturally, I got home and couldn't find the video right away, so it took a few days of searching to find it again and locate the digis I wanted. (Let that be a lesson to like the video the moment you see something you want to try my crafty friends.)

My visit to Sushi Dolls creator Susi's blog, led me to her newest DT call, so I decided to take a shot and here's my entry:

I enjoyed colouring Abby so much, I ended up creating a set of three cards. The girls were coloured using Touch Twin Brush alcohol markers. The same markers were used for skin and hair, but varied so I could give them all slightly different hair and skin tones while keeping a cohesive whole. I'd like to think I succeeded just a little. Ready for some closeups?

Peach Abby was the first to get coloured. She was inspired by my new Coral Sunset nail polish which I purchased last weekend. (Random, I know.) I just looked down at my hands and thought, "wouldn't this colour make a tasty cupcake?" So I experimented with a few colour combos and ended up with this beauty.
Touch Twins Used: YR132 YR133 BR107 R140 (skin) BR103 BR96 BR92 R1 (hair) R140 R28 R22 R14  CG0.5 CG1 CG2 (cupcake)

Since I was still in a colouring mood, I coloured up skin and hair on two more stamps. Then I remembered that YouTube ad where the presenter shows you how to decorate a cake and add a doll to the center, so I made my second Abby pink like that Barbie doll cake.

Abby Cupcake number three was inspired by the paper pad I decided to use: MME Happy Day. I just loved the combination of colours in the papers and chose to work with the blue because I knew they would all complement each other.

I hope you like these cards half as much as I enjoyed creating them.

Hugs and Kisses.
