Sparkle Paste Creation 4 - Altered Ice Cream Cup


And now comes my last and most favourite creation using Little Birdie's Sparkle Paste - Mulberry Glaze! It is an altered icecream cup! :)

Wanna see how it looked like before the make over?

A few more shots of the makeover!

Look at that gorgeous texture! I totally loved it :)

To start with, I cleaned the cup thoroughly and applied a couple of layers of gesso, with drying time between each coat. Initially I started using the sparkle paste over a stencil but I messed up one of the flower designs and didn't want to continue with it. So I started dabbing the paste randomly onto the cup to create a fun texture as you see :) This was quick and easy to make too! Once the paste was dry, I embellished it with a jewel chain sticker on the base and around the rim. I then added a few butterflies from Itsy Bitsy and some flowers from Mudra's Botanical Blooms stampset, inked using Altenew red cosmos inks!
