Never Too Much Cake!!!!

Every once in a while you just have to "treat" yourself, right? Especially on your birthday, right? When I was making this birthday card, I had so much fun coloring in the images by the time I was done, my mouth was watering. While the layout is a basic one, I wanted the eye to focus on the focal point of the card - the sweets! To enhance the images that I watercolored, I used two different products - Illuminate Top Coat Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink and Crystal Effects. If you click on the card, it will open larger and you'll be able to see more detail. Where I used the Illuminate Top Coat, you'll see a nice shimmer coat. Where you see a shiny surface, that is where I used Crystal Effects. Let me tell you a little bit about these two products.

Illuminate Top Coat Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink
Item No. 121084, $5.50

Pearlized accent ink draws attention to your creativity. Simply paint on a lustrous accent anywhere you need it. Works best over permanent ink or a solid stamped image. The Smooch Illuminate Top Coat is both transparent and pearlized so you can add the Smooch shimmer to anything! Same great nail polish style bottle with foam tip applicator, but has a pink handle so you can easily identify it from your other Smooch bottles. Use over stamped images or journaling, or you can layer on top of other Smooch colors once dry to really make them pop! Perfect for use on paper, vellum, fabric, wood, clay, and so much more. Smooch is an acid-free and archival pigment ink. Fast-drying and permanent on most surfaces.

Crystal Effects
