Simon Says - Food and/or Drink

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too because

and the theme for this week is...
I created a trio of cards to celebrate CAKE, my favourite food group using Tim Holtz Distress Oxides and Stampers Anonymous stencils for the backgrounds and Tim Holtz/Sizzix Celebrate, Brushstroke Flowers Mini and Alphanumeric Bulletin, Bold and Tiny Type Lower Thinlits to decorate. I featured 3 of my favourite cakes - Angel Cake, Chocolate Cake with Buttercream Frosting and Lemon Drizzle Cake.

I coloured 3 - A2 panels of Distress Watercolor card with Saltwater Taffy. Salvaged Patina and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide inks. I smooshed the ink pad on to my Glass Media Mat, spritzed with water, picked up the ink with a piece of plastic and pressed on to the watercolor card.
I created a tone-on-tone effect on the backgrounds using stencils from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Mini Stencil Sets 5, 6 and 11
I applied Sizzix Adhesive Sheets to Distress Watercolor card and die-cut the cakes, icing and candles three times using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Celebrate Colorize Thinlits. The adhesive sheets will keep the die-cuts in place which is very handy when it comes to colouring and prevents the little itty bitty pieces from going walk-about.
I smooshed various colours of Distress Oxide ink pads (colours linked below) on to my Glass Media Mat and coloured the cakes and candles and flames using a Distress Detailer Brush. Once the inks had dried, I peeled the backing from the die-cuts and assembled.
I embellished the Angel Cake card with flowers and leaves die-cut from Distress Watercolor card coloured with Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide ink and scraps of Sizzix Surfacez card left over from a previous make.
I die-cut the sentiment from the Saltwater Taffy card using Alphanumeric Bulletin and Tiny Type Lower Thinlits and fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium.
For the Chocolate cake card, I die-cut the sentiment from Idea-ology Classic KraftStock Dark Brown card using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alphanumeric Bold and Tiny Type Lower Thinlits, fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium ahd added Trinity Stamps Heart Sprinkles.

For the Lemon Drizzle cake, I die-cut the sentiment from Distress Watercolor card twice using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alphanumeric Bulletin and Bold Thinlits, coloured with Scattered Straw Distress Oxide ink, layered to create dimension and fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium.

I trimmed the panels to 4" x 5.1/4", added shading to the edges using the background colour ink pads and a mini round blending tool and fixed to A2 white card blanks.
