Happy Birthday - Watercoloured Topsy Cakes

Happy Birthday - Watercoloured Topsy Cakes

Hi everyone! It is Verity here again from Pretty Little Buttonso good to be back up on the blog again. I have some sad news, I am coming to the end of my term here on the Brutus Monroe Design team. I have truly loved working here on the team, working with the fabulous Brutus Monroe products and bringing you lots of inspiration. So today's project is my last here on the blog. I hope you enjoy it!

Happy Birthday - Watercoloured Topsy Cakes details:

To start off, stamp a cake from the Topsy Cake stamp set in Sidewalk Surface Ink onto Smooth watercolour cardstock. Make sure this is dry and colour in with watercolours. I kept the icing white but added a little shading with a pale grey to give it definition. 

Once dry, draw a pencil line towards the base of the cake, and cut along this line and fussy cut around the cake as well. Create an A2 card base out of Alabaster cardstock and using some masking tape, tape off the back side of the card at the scoreline. Ink blend colours onto the background - I used Faded Jeans and Broken China distress Oxides. Using 3D foam squares apply your cake cut out onto the front of the card for dimension. 

To finish the card off, added a layered die-cut sentiment out of Alabaster cardstock along with an embossed sentiment on Raven cardstock using Alabaster embossing powder. Lastly, add a few Acrylic Bubbles with Craft glue and few clear Nuvo drops as embellishments.
