More Cupcakes Step-By-Step

In my second attempt, I tried to create a more interesting background for the cupcakes so I applied a base coat and stamped swirls in a slightly darker pink before stamping the cupcakes.  There was a little bleed through with the colors, but I liked the overall affect.  I'll walk you through how I did this one.

I used 5 colors for this one.
First, I applied basecoat and 2 coats of Revlon Lilac Pastelle.  (I love this color, BTW, it makes a great soft background for stamping!) 

Next, I used BM 201 and New Lilac to add the background stripes.

Finally, I used two colors on the plate to stamp the cupcakes.

 Hope you like it!
