I originally had another idea that used an actual angel food cake container. But I need a Big Bite Crop A Dile to make it work like I envisioned. Don't you know that the year I finally decided I needed one and requested it for Christmas is when they announce 1 month later they are coming out with the Big Bite. I haven't made the plunge yet on that tool. But hey, I collect tools too so it probably won't be long! LOL
I switched gears and used an empty peanut butter container instead. Just simple paper decorations where the label used to be. I colored my angel cake with my prismacolor pencils and used my blending pencil to smooth it out and add shading. One tip: this is a digi image I have and the ink can smear even with the pencils. Don't you LOVE the cake stand? Who could resist a pink polka dotted cake stand? I know I couldn't!!
I recommend using images that you've printed on a toner machine instead of an ink jet machine as you don't have to worry about the smearing then. I painted some Shimmer It on her wings and lacy edging, cut her out and popped her up with dimensionals. A quick ribbon treatment with layered buttons hid the red lid that did not match my color scheme. Here's another tip: lots of red sticky tape to hold these layers in place!
