SOSS #111 - Y is for Yummy

Time for some yummy cards over at The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers! Snark is optional like buttercream icing but why would you not if you could? Mmm . . . buttercream.

I started my card by coloring the shadow of the cake and then applying Copic 0 using a paper towel which lifts the color away in an interesting pattern. Then I colored up the cake itself. The sentiment banner is part of the cake set but it wasn't long enough for my snarky sentiment, so I stamped both ends with a gap between then drew in the gap with a Copic Multiliner 0.3. 

The Details:  Concord and 9th Happy Day, CZ Design Simple Sentiments 1, Copics, Copic Multiliner 0.3, Memento Tuxedo Black, mystery washi


  1. I swear we have an Elliot/E.T. connection going on, as I just tried that technique on something I colored a few days ago! LOL! Your coloring is amazing, and I love that bit of snark added! Gorgeous card!

  2. Fabulously coloured cake, love the sentiment, I know a few people that need that card.

  3. Totally brilliant! Love how you extended the banner - must try that, Jo x

  4. I've not heard of that technique before but it's given the shadow a wonderful natural fade. The combo of beauty and snark is just fabulous!

  5. Buttercream and snark, a match made in heaven! And wowzer on your colouring!


Thanks so much for your comments. I really enjoy and appreciate them all!
