A Muse Weekly Challenge ~ Birthday Wishes

Pin It

This week's weekly challenge on amuseaddicts is to create a birthday card, gift card, or tag. Since I just bought some a muse argyle notecards, I chose to do a card using the 'cake with flowers' stamp.

I used prisma markers to make a chocolate raspberry cake (one of my favorites *yummers*). To give the frosting a fondant look, I added 3-d crystal lacquer to the top layer. Also added crystal lacquer to the platter to give it a glassy look. I colored white grosgrain ribbon with the markers used for the raspberry filling and the frosting...what a great technique!

Another sparkly touch (unfortunately, you can't tell by the pic)...I added iridescent embossing powder to 'happy birthday'.

now I should go workout and mmmm...cake

paper - a muse notecards cottage green argyle band, certainly celery, blush blossom, papertrey white cs; stamps - cake with flowers, happy birthday (both by a muse); ink - versafine onyx black; accessories - prisma markers, ribbon, marvy punches, iridescent emboss powder, crystal lacquer, spica glitter pens, gold liquid pearls
