What's Cooking

I had so much fun coloring Turtle Tots Baker from Stamping Bella. Hehe, this was a test run for this week's polka dot challenge. Ha but it didn't make the cut. I do however, think it's still pretty neat.

The October Afternoon design paper was perfect inspiration for me for coloring the apron - the flowers matched! I love when that happens. Then I couldn't resist coloring a bowl of chocolate cake batter. I'll even share a secret with you, I messed up the chef hat. I tried it in shades of red first but then decided it clashed. So I simply stamped another, colored it up the way I wanted and then pieced it on top. Voila, fixed!

I created the sentiment on the computer and sent my Bella's Bestest paper through my printer once I had the placement of the image set. The ribbon is from my Grandma Soporito stash...I love being able to incorporate her supplies into my cards. Each time I pull them out I have such wonderful memories of the woman who saved everything.

Card details: finished size 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, October Afternoon design paper, Bazzil black cardstock, black rhinestones, black grossgrain ribbon, dimensionals copics, prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol

You still have time to create a polka dot creation for this week's Bellariffic Challenge. I'll see you back here on Friday.

Thanks for stopping by.
