I am So Excited to announce that today I am a Guest Designer at The Stamping Chef in their Girly Girl challenge.
I have used this sweet image ‘So Excited’ and teamed it up with a fab sentiment from TLC Creations that suited the expression so well and I am known for saying OMG quite a bit….. I’m just too exciteable J
I used Promarkers and Flexmarkers to colour her up and cut it out using my precious fine tipped Fiskars scissors. I honestly would not enjoy fussy cutting as much without them. I have tried others and it just s not the same…..
I used a sketch from Hobbykutz for the layout and rotated it to fit my image. One of my most favourite colour schemes is pink and brown so I used papers from the First Edition ranges by Dovecraft. These are 2 different pads but I love that the colours are similar across them all so you can mix and match between pads very easily. The base layer has circles, some of which are glittered. The strip of chocolate has been punched with a Martha Stewart deep edge punch. I placed some bright pink underneath so the pattern showed through better.
The glittery paper has been die cut using a lovely Nestabilities set Romantic Rectangles and I have curled the edges up a little bit so it creates a pretty frame. The Image is mounted on 3d foam squares.
The TLC sentiment and mat has been doe cut using more Nesties and for a finishing touch I added an assortment made from 4 varying side flowers by Prima and a big twinkly gem centre.
I do hope you will check out The Stamping Chef. Tamara creates some wonderful images, some cute, and some sassy. There is a fortnightly challenge on the blog and on Facebook there is a group TSC Recipes where there is a weekly free image based challenge. There is loads going on and the people over there are lovely.
Thanks for having me as a Guest DT Ladies J
