I'm supposed to be writing, but a new box of goodies from My Favorite Things (MFT) showed up yesterday, and I have lots of thank you cards, a Valentine card, and a Get Well card to make. So here I am at my craft desk instead of my writing desk. Yeah...some days are jut like that. Here's what I've been working on:
The chef and sentiment are from MFT, the background words are from an old--and I do mean old--CTMH stamp, and the paper is current CTMH called Sugar Rush. Now, the person who is getting this card may not catch the special meaning of using sugar paper on a baking card, but I'll know...and so will you. I used MFT's Blueprints #15 to cut the Pomegranate dotted stripe and the Sea Glass small banner. The arrow is retired CTMH Washi tape.
I sponged Glacier ink over the background words to give it just a hint of color and set it apart from the sentiment area. The chef was colored with Copic markers BG0000, BG10, C3, C00, E21, E000, E57, RV69, and RV39. He was cut using the coordinating die cuts from MFT for "Recipe for Happiness."
To get the multicolored sentiment, I masked off everything but "Bake" with tape, stamped it in Pomegranate ink, removed the tape, and carefully stamped the remaining words in Black. Fairly easy to do, and it gives a subtle highlight to the play on words. The sentiment is from the MFT set "You Bake Me Happy." The inside sentiment, from the same set, says "I Mix You." So fun!
Time to return to my day job.
Until next time,
