When I was making this card I was thinking of the colours of the pastry shops, especially the Ladurée. I'm not a huge fan of the pastires of the Ladurée - actually, I'm not a huge fan of things made with sugar - but I love the style, the decorations, the advertisements and the wrappings of Ladurée.
So I created this:
The first layer of this card was a pastel green cardstock which was embossed using the Polkadot layering stencil by Tim Holtz (THS068) and the Ranger white embossing powder. The edges of the green rectangle was inked with a brown distress ink (Gathered Twigs).
The frame was cut out from chipboard and I painted gold.
The roses were in my stash, I made them earlier.
The cake was stamped on a watercolour paper and was coloured with Ranger Distress markers.
As for the background in the frame ... for this, I used the Reflections stamp and the Ranger Archival Potting Soil ink pad. After stamping I toned back with white acrylic paint, then spritzed with Ranger Distress Spray Stain (Vintage Photo) using a brush. In the end, I inked the edge with Vintage Photo ink.
