A New Kind of Cake

I have been playing with my 3d embossing folder and most of the bg I created were ending up quite dark. So with this one I wanted to be sure and keep colors on the light side. Once I had dry embossed the white layering cs I smeared on the clear gesso and let that dry. Then added greens in water color. After that dried I swiped the grass green ink pad over the high spots creating even more contrast and another green shade. The next layer of paper is some green geometric pp that I tried to attach with dot runner but that did not stick so added a liquid glue. The next layer is white cs with white embossing paste through a stencil. When dry it was sponged with the grass green ink and a few details with white gel pen. Now for the cake, this is actually a digi printed on white copy paper and trimmed close. Then smeared oil, yes oil, and let soak in and rub off excess. Then used copics to add hits of color. Attached with liquid glue. Sentiment is stamped in black on tissue that also was trimmed very close and attached with a thin coat of clear gesso on both sides. Added some white Silhouette cut butterflies and stamped geometric in medium gray. All is mounted on white cs base.

  1. You always put so very much into each of your cards! I have to ask, what type of ink did you use on the cake? Inkjet? Laser? Just wondered, as it didn’t smear with the oil.
    Great job on this!

    1. It was ink jet and I did not wait very long. I was quite surprised when it did not smear, the excess wiped off and the effect was such translucent material that glued very well.
