It's time for another challenge over at the Seize the Birthday blog where Shirley has chosen Cake as our topping. Very appropriate, don't you think?
I began by stamping, die cutting and Copic coloring my images. I channeled my inner Kathy Racoosin by adding some texture to her apron with a rag and some colorless blender. (I really need to remember to do this more often.) I also added some interest to the reds with a white gel pen. The background was made using an embossing folder and white pigment ink. I thought she needed a bit of grounding so I stamped the border which I added to the bottom of the panel. The sentiment is white heat embossed. (I actually did this after the embossing and surprisingly had no problem. Yay for small crafty successes....LOL!) I adhered the panel to a white card base leaving a nice wide border.
I invite you to come visit the blog for more inspiration from my teammates. We'd love to see your card in our gallery!
