Susan is hosting One Layer Wednesday this week over at Simplicity … the challenge is ‘what do you do on a snowy day?’. Susan was inspired to come up with the idea by some amazing confections at Cake Wrecks (not outrageous ones but beautiful ones here) … we can use the cakes as inspiration or come up with our own idea. If, by some remote chance you haven’t already been on a visit to Simplicity … go … it’s chock full of wonderfully inspiring cards and all kinds of fantastic hints and tips. Also, if you feel like a full blown uncontrolable laughing fit (which is what I had … with tears!) pop in to Cake Wrecks too!
I came up with two cards (the second is in the next post) … this one is inspired by this stunning tiered snowflake cake:
I haven’t done very much sponging before … maybe once … but I love the look and so admire those talented people who can create whole scenes with masking and ink. So, given my novice status with this technique, I kept it simple … masked a strip and sponged it, added the snowflake/star squares, then enlarged the strip and sponged it … twice more, and wiped the residual ink off the images afterwards. The sentiment was stamped with the same colour ink as the sponging … kept deliberately simple so it can be used for any number of occasions!
Hope you’ve had/are having a marvellous Monday … thanks so much for coming by and especially so if you’ve had chance to leave a comment below … Anita 🙂
