My First Post for TSTR! Celebrate with Cake!

I am so excited to be part of the amazingly talented team who designs for The Shabby Tea Room! I love the photo we were given to work with this week!

I added some aqua and pink to help make the yellow pop! The chipboard pieces are from Maggie Holmes. Her products are shabby but modern at the same time. I don’t know how she does it!

The cake was ivory before I Copic Airbrushed it. I overdid it a bit so I wiped most of the ink off with an alcohol-soaked cloth. I was very nervous that I was about to ruin my chipboard piece but it worked out really well. I also added the glitter to the cake plate. TIP! In case you were wondering, I carved out all but the top layer of paper on the cake plate on the left so it would overlap the balloon strings nicely. It is simple but go slow and easy so you don’t cut through the front layer of paper.

I also added some bling to the balloon. I started with embossing powder but either it doesn’t work well with chipboard or I overheated it slightly. It just looked a bit flat and icky. Have you ever overheated EP before? It gets an almost oily looking halo and flattens out. So that didn’t work out like I hoped 😦 To try and fix it I added some opaque glitter overtop. I didn’t have to cover the whole area, just some was enough. It matches well with the gold already on the balloon.

Hi! I’m a disabled SAHM of three wonderful boys. Married since 1997 to Tim. I love crafts, creating art, sewing, needlework, making jewelry, reading, watching movies and snuggling with my fat tabby cat, Jesse. My boys are all on the autism spectrum so it’s a chaotic but fun life. I live in a small town north-east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s in the middle of corn fields and horse farms while still feeling like a suburb.
