The big 'eat cake' cake

Another eat cake graphics stamp (one that's really true to its name!) The cake is done in layers I water-coloured first on the textured white cardstock, dried it with my heat gun, and then stamped the image (colouring it with markers.) I tried it the other way 'round, but it blurred like crazy--of course. I think I need a million colours of stazon! ;0)

The ink I used to "paint" the cake was mixed to match the background paper: 'Always Artichoke' with a little 'Cool Caribbean' reinker. The background paper is Basic Grey ACS-047 Sublime Collection "Raspberry Blue."

After I had the cake put together (3 pieces) stuck on each other with dimensionals, I put some crystal effects on the "icing" so I could add some dazzling diamonds. Other cardstock colours for this card include "Ruby Red & 'Not Quite Navy.' The ribbon is the new S.U. 'in colour' double-stitched ribbon in "Blue Bayou."

Thanks for looking,
Mel
