Hello Friends, How are you today? I am super excited to help celebrate Concord & 9th month long Birthday party. All month long Concord & 9th is featuring different artists to inspire us all each day. I was thrilled and honored when they asked me to help celebrate!
I am so touched and just floating for the write up that Concord & 9th wrote on their blog … I also have a little bio too…oh my!
Why not celebrate with a cake!! What’s your fav? Mine is yellow cake with chocolate icing….yum!
Concord & 9th has a unique style and I love their stamps. The illustration of this cake with the flowers is stunning. I love it so much. You can jazz the cake up or color it simply. A strip of heavy weight vellum is the best way to add a last minute sentiment. Matte Medium is my go to for vellum and sequins.
I colored my cake while I was a way so I wasn’t able to do a video. I was hoping that this trio of photos might help. In the first photo is my finished coloring with my Copic markers. The middle photo I outlined the image with a fine tip sharpie.( I have been doing this for 8 years lol) On the third photo I added some highlights with these colored pencils…it’s a subtle difference but, it’s fun to add another layer of color.
I wanted to use these flowers on this awesome bear but, I didn’t have the bear stamp with me. When I was home and found my bear … the flowers didn’t look right on the bear so on the cake they went. (I ended up finding a place for my bear as you will see for my second card)
In case you are curious what colors I used… here ya go 🙂
