Wedding Cake using Ombre ink pad

Okay, so I'm on a kick with the new Ombre ink pads.  I made a lovely watercolor back ground using these ink pads, so today I thought I'd do some stamping.

I used the stamp set "Summer Sorbet" - the wedding cake-it could be a birthday cake as well)

The Bermuda Bay Ombre ink pad was used to stamp this wedding cake.  Just a note:  the ink pad is firmer than what we're used to, so you have to stamp harder.  Also, I found to get the best gradation in color, stamp in a circular motion while stamping firmly. The image piece was matted with Bermuda Bay cardstock, and adhered to the Bermuda Bay DSP with dimensionals.

Two small Calypso Coral hearts were placed on top of the cake.  These were punched using the Owl Builder punch.

The sentiment was stamped with Bermuda Bay ink onto Whisper White card stock.  This piece was notched at both ends and attached to the bottom of the image piece.

Below that some thick Calypso Coral Baker's twine was wrapped around the DSP and tied into a bow.

The two doves were cut from the top of the wedding cake from the stamp set "Your Special Day"
 
You can probably see the gradation in color better in the close up of the cake below.



To add bling, some dazzling diamonds was added to the layers, some Wink of Stella to the swag marks, and some Bermuda Bay sequins randomly placed on the card.
