The Wedding Cake


Hi again.....

And I'm back.... yet again!!  This time, it's with my DT card for All Dressed Up - our theme on the Facebook Group for this month is..


I needed a wedding card, so I chose to use The Wedding Cake - a beautiful image to colour - as it takes very little doing, which I love.  I coloured the actual cake at the edges with pale, cool greys (this gives the illusion of depth and shape), and then made it pop with the shading on the outside of the image.   Of course, I just had to bring in a little bit of pink too... well I HAD to, didn't I? LOL!

Card Info:
Sentiment and Die- Paper Trey Ink Tiny Tags
Paper - a scrap from stash
Colouring - Copics
Cake - C0/1
Roses and Ribbon - R81/83/85
Leaves - YG23, Y63
Shading and Grounding - T0/1/2
Ribbon and Glitter

I do wish you could see the sparkle on this card - it looks really good in real life.  Maybe I should start putting little videos of me twisting and turning my cards to show how they catch the light... LOL!

You can join in this fun challenge by using an All Dressed Up image on a Square Card and going to the Facebook Page HERE.

OK, that's me done for today... but I'll be back tomorrow.  Beginnings of months are always a busy time in my crafty world..  and I love it!

Big hugs
