CAS-ual Inky Cake Colours

I'm doing a triple challenge with this card - using the sketch from CAS-ual Friday, the use a new to you inky technique challenge from Less is More, and the colours from annabelle stamps colour challenge which are orange, raspberry and olive.


For the inky technique, I used twinkling H2O's to create the pearly background.  I painted them with a waterbrush onto a brand new rubber eraser and stamped the orange leaving a gap for the green.  I then stamped the cake onto and off centre in raspberry ink and embossed with clear gloss.  I stamped the ribbon and candle in the same ink but without embossing.  The olive greeting is from Waltzingmouse.

I think I cursed the weather with the hot colours though as the blue sky has gone and we're back to grey so I think I may go and make more Christmas cards.....

  1. I love this card, the inking technique is so perfect for the image and I can imagine the embossed cake looks stunning IRL - always hard to show embossing in a photograph. Lovely colour combo too.

  9. Another wonderful card Crafty! I don't have any H2O's but I may have to correct the oversight. I really love this card and the wonderful shimmer that comes from the H@Os.
