Big Cake, Little Guy


Ingredients:

Card/Paper: Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White for stamping cup cake, Water colour paper for image
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Not Quite Navy, Barely Banana, Blush Blossom
Stamps: Big Bold Birthday, All in the Family
Other: 5/8" Chocolate Chip grosgrain, pewter brads, happy birthday Cuttlebug folder

Method:

I stamped the cake and candle images onto a scrap of Whisper White and cut them out. The icing stamp I inked up using a sponge dauber to transfer the ink from the pad to the stamp. Put a little speckle of it over the centre, but mainly just colour around the edges. The candle flames were coloured in with Barely Banana.

Used the stampamajig to stamp the boy - I had to extend his arms by drawing to fill in the gap between them and his shoulders in order for them to reach above his head to the cake. Used a black marker for this. Watercoloured his clothes using ink squeezed onto the lid of the Chocolate Chip and Not Quite Navy pads. Used Blush Blossom for his face. Used a piece of cut and dry foam to apply Not Quite Navy ink around the image. Glued the cake pieces in place, and matted the picture onto Chocolate Chip card.

Cuttlebugged the happy birthday design onto Not Quite Navy card, and matted onto Bashful Blue and Chocolate Chip. Finished with ribbon and brads.
