You Take The Cake!


In this case.... Lemon Chiffon. Yum! When my new Lemon Tart colors from PaperTrey ink arrived, I just had to make something lemony! I love this little piece of cake from my Petite Phrases set (Lizzie Anne Designs), so I gave it a lemon twist. I stamped the lemons from the same stamp set, so nobody would have to question just what kind of cake it is...lol.

I stamped my cake and lemons with Adirondack Espresso, and colored both with my Copic Sketch markers. I also highlighted with my Spica glitter pens (Clear & Lemon). My little "rinds" are a super thin piece of Lemon Tart paper cut in to little pieces, and adhered with Tombo Mono Multi glue. Square Nestabilities were used for the focal image, and the background was created with the flower image from Shapes & Stitches (Lizzie Anne Designs).

Thanks for visiting, and have a wonderful Sunday!!
