I can't lie!  I craved doughnuts while making this card!  

Donuts are stamped with Archival ink in Coffee.  (Don't use water soluble ink--it will make the frosting bleed.)

I studied Shirley's spotlight at STAMPlorations HERE in which she discussed "frosting" the donuts. I decided to do my own experimenting with products I had in my stash.

Wanting my frosting to look dimensional--a layer on top of the donut--I used the following:
Glitter glue--both Studio G and Ranger Stickles in various colors to look like colored sugar.
Dimensional paint--Art Anthology Sorbet ended up looking to me like toasted coconut.
Liquid Pearls in white- with Crytal Effectz to look like granulated sugar
I didn't have any dimensional for my chocolate frosting, so I mixed some Wendy Vecchi embossing paste with chocolate brown acrylic craft paint.  I didn't think it was a dark enough contrast for my dough, so I added some USArtQuest Burnt Umber Perfect Pigment.

When the frosting hardened, I colored the donuts with Copic Brick Beige and Sepia and Stampin' Write Chocolate Chip.
