I got the inspiration for the layout from Skipping Stones Design April Guest Sketch Artist, Laurie Schmidlin. This is challenge SSD 71. We also have two new Guest DT members for April, Mona Pendleton and Diana Fisher. Be sure to visit and play along with Sketch Tuesday at Skipping Stones Design.
Thus the silver cake plate...I used the metal embossing technique I did several weeks ago for the Skipping Stones Design 'Tips and Tricks Thursday'. It was quite simple really, I stamped the image from SSD set, Green Birthday on the back of a Spellbinders metal sheet, waited a couple minutes for the ink to dry, then used my stylus to emboss over the image, then flipped it to the front side and trimmed with my little pair of craft scissors. I was pretty excited how the little cake stand turned out! The original tutorial can be seen on my blog at this link: Tips and Tricks-Metal Embossing.
