2S4Y - Ooh La La, Fancy Cake

Over at 2sketches4you this weeks sketch was provided by the talented Laura and I had to have ago. I used some gorgeous October afternoon papers which I have been eyeing all over cards lately! Here's my take on Sketch 17...

This stamp was one of my gift from Katharina, it's such a fun image and I coloured mine with sakura pens, the pastel, glaze and stardust, I blended with the clear glaze and my water brush, I'm quite please with the result as I don't have a vast colour range of pens! You can just make out the sparkle in the close up and after I cut it out I applied glossy accents!
I used some papermania acetate sheet for the tag and very surprised at how beautifully it cut with my nestability dies! I then applied BG rubons and finished with a little bling!
