Patterned Paper: Graphic 45
Crystal butterfly center: Prima (I used the original wings somewhere else)
Punch: Martha Stewart
Ink: Copic Sketch Markers R20, YG11, BG53, C1, C3, Colorless Blender and a white Sharpie paint pen
Scrap of wide lace
I assembled the card by cutting the cardstock to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" then scoring and folding it, trimming the patterned paper to 5 1/4"x 4", wrapping the lace around the patterned paper and adhering them both to the card base. I also punched a single butterfly from white cardstock and adhered a crystal butterfly body to it and set it aside to go on top of my cake.
I printed my image on my smooth cardstock and started at the top layer of the cake.
Step #1 - I filled this layer using my colorless blender and then feathered in BG53 from both sides inward. I did not try to go around the polka dots.
Step #2 - I used my colorless blender to soften the edges of the blue then colored the next two layers of the cake in the same fashion using R20 and YG11.
Step #3 - I chose to use a Sharpie paint pen to fill all the polka dots making them a bright white. You could also use Copic Opaque White or even craft paint to fill these areas.
Step #4 - Complete the last two layers of the cake repeating steps 1-3 then use C1 and C3 to shade the platter coming back in with your colorless blender to soften and your Sharpie paint pen or white medium for highlights.
Step #5 - I fussy cut the cake and attached it and the butterfly to the card.
As a finishing touch I added a few small crystals onto the spots of the cake to add one more little pop.
