April enjoys cooking - she always serves us a delicious meal when we eat over - so I wanted to make her a cooking-themed card! I had the perfect stamp set to use - this is a Darcie stamp set, which I bought back in February and this is the first time I inked it up!
This card took a while because I was creating a scene. So I stamped out the gal, butcher block, mixer and sugar bowl first and colored them all in with my prisma pencils and gamsol. Then I had to carefully cut them all out. For the butcher block, I created my own wood grain by using a sharpie pen. I was pretty pleased with myself! But, then I struggled to put all of these pieces into a "room".
Low and behold.........that night I went blog surfing and what was waiting for me in my inbox? - Heather's card :WOW - it was like the cardmaking gods answered my prayers! (well, Heather did too!) - So, CASE-ing what she did, I finished up my card using some American Crafts patterned paper and even though it doesn't show on my picture, I used a PTI wood impression plate for the floor. I finished it off by stamping an outlet under the butcher block.
So, a HUGE thank you to Heather for her beautiful creations day in and day out and for the inspiration to finish my card for April!
Thanks for visiting!
