I’ve finally managed to make a card and submit it in time for a challenge (I’m still using Martin’s laptop!). This time it’s one of my favourite sites – CAS colours and sketches where it’s a colour challenge this week. Here’s my entry:
And here’s the banner that inspired my card:
I think that this may be the first time I’ve used chocolate chip, or at least close to it. I’ve had the colour for over a year too! I’m just not fond of brown. This image is from one of the new sets in the annual catalogue, Lighthearted Leaves. It’s a really great set and lends itself to colouring; I’m going to have to do some watercolouring with this soon. There are also framelits that allow you to cut out the leaves – I have a card to share soon using these. But here I stamped the image in chocolate chip on very vanilla (what a great name – I just made some peanut butter chocolate chip cookies using a recipe from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe which are HIGHLY recommended – her chocolate chip cookies are amazing too) and then used my Stampin’ Write markers in lost lagoon and wild wasabi to colour in the image. The sentiment also comes from the same set and is stamped in chocolate chip. I glued the very vanilla piece onto a mat of chocolate chip (I was obsessed with chocolate chip by this time in my baking) and then onto a base of lost lagoon. I’m really pleased with how this card came out. I’m also pleased with the cookies, let’s see how much my work colleagues like them tomorrow.
See you tomorrow,
