DAY #6 - Mixed Media Card Week

Hello!  This week I share with you a series of inky mixed media cards I've been making!

Each day I'll highlight one card and talk you through the supplies and techniques I've used.

Welcome to Day #6

Summary Process

Yes, back to my current favourite technique for card backgrounds!  The "Wrinkle-Free Distress" technique by Tim Holtz!
I got added texture in the background by dripping plain water onto the almost dried background.
Instead of white pen round the edges I decided to get my sewing machine out and machine around the background prior to mounting on the card.

I stamped the cake stamp several times onto different papers and paper pieced the cake together.  The stamp set came with two different sized cakes so I simply cut more by hand to make the cake taller!
