Brutus Monroe: Stay calm and eat cake!

Hey, good to see you back here on the blog. I am showing you another card using to the Topsy Cake stamp set, I just love this set!! This is a nice clean and simple card and I love how the white space really brings out the colouring of the cakes. I also added a little ink blending in the background to highlight the stamps. Recently, I had discovered how easy and beautiful the surface inks from Brutus Monroe are to blend. Give them a try and you’lll be adding it to your card all the time!

*For supplies featured in this post, please refer to the links at the end of the post.

Stay calm and eat cake card Process Overview

Trim a piece of Alabaster cardstock down to 1/4″ smaller than your cardbase. Using a blending tool, softly blend on honeysuckle ink in the lower right hand corner, gently blending out into white. For a little more interest, add some matching ink splatter by mixing the ink with water and us a paintbrush to splatter onto the panel. Stamp a couple of cupcakes and cake in Raven detail ink on a seperate piece of card and colour these in with pencils. Try to keep the colour scheme in correspondence to the ink colour.  Mat and foam mount the cakes for depth and dimension. Add a sentiment to the card and mat with some sparkle glitter washi tape. Lastly, embellish with holographic sequins for added interest.
