MFT Sketch Challenge

Monday, March 14, 2016

Hi there!
 I made another card for the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge!

I always say, simple sketches inspire me more.
Here is my card...

When I first saw this sketch, this is the design that popped in my head, but I got distracted by their color challenge, I ended up with a totally different card...*LOL* So I just wanted to create this before the challenge closed!

I mean, really!!? 
I had to get this cute chef as soon as it became available... I know I am crazy sometimes...but just look at him! 
I colored him with my watercolor brushes. Those bright green shoes were inspired by one of the Iron Chefs (my absolute favorite cooking show from Japan!) Mario Batali! *LOL*

I originally heat embossed the whisks on a strip of velum and colored the handle red on the back, but this darn red ink seems to bleed or smear more than other colors, I made a huge mess!!! So I remade one on Whisper White instead...

I purchased the Gingham Background Stamp with the chef set, I just thought they belonged together like cookies and milk...;-)
This chef set comes with several cute sentiments, I picked this one because this card is going to my aunt-in-law who baked the cake and cupcakes for my son's birthday! 

My son loves Minecraft, so she made him a creeper cake along with TNT cupcakes :-D I am not a fan of the game, but these cakes sure are cute! I put a Creeper faces on green balloons and TNT signs on red cube balloons as well.

My notes...

Stamp: Recipe for happiness, Gingham Background (My Favorite Things)
Paper: Whisper White,Smoky Slate, Real Red, Watercolor Paper
Ink: Jet Black Stazon, Versamark, Kuretake Watercolor Brush Set, Real Red, Silver Colored Pencil (Sakura)

Hope you enjoyed it!
