Glistening Wedding Cake

Just as if it was coated in icing, this entire cake (and stand) was coated in
Glossy Accents. By doing this, I was able to stamp the background over the cake.
If you know me at all, you know I have 2 loves when it comes to card making...
Digital Stamps &
Not that there aren't other things I love about card making and stamping...
I just love these two things best.
This is Thursday, which means more eye candy by the Digital Delights Design Team.
To make this card, I used the Tiered Cake

Love is in the air sentiment set - Click Image to Close
 Before coloring this cake with Prismacolor Pencils, I added the sentiment in Publisher, digitally.
Easy Peasy!
After the Glossy Accents dried, I stamped over it with a background stamp I have had forever. It's an old CTMH wedding words wood mounted stamp. I stamped it with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.
I used Tattered Floral and Shabby Shutters DI with an inking tool to the background.
I mounted this onto an embossed olive card stock frame,
then onto a pink patterned paper from my stash.
The ruffle at the bottom is from Stampin' Up!
Finally, the card needed something, so I stamped two filigree corners in
Walnut Stain DI. The corners are by Crafty Secrets.
Be sure to stop over at Delightful Challenges to see what's going on.
