What's Cooking?.....

sweetie pie....

Oh how I have missed Taylor's friday sketch challenges! Being away on holidays for a couple of weeks will do that! Today's card is ALL stampin'....no patterned paper to be seen (a rarity for me as I LOOOOOVE patterned paper).
I used some new HERO arts images for this design. First I created the background using the Kitchen Silhouette stamp. I inked it up in versamark and clear embossed it on kraft cardstock.
I then used my shabby shutters and walnut inks over top giving the resist technique. I thought it gave this card a nice well worn charm.

Here I grabbed the "What's Cooking?" set and stamped my row of utensils and most importantly the pie. I colored them all with my copics and the background is even airbrushed.....
Did you know this strip was originally white!
I am LOOOVING the new X-press it Blending Card paper for my copic work! I picked up a stack while in Oregon on vacation...so I can tell you store owners copic has it in stock! Yeah!
I added a lot of copic ink to this paper and not a speck of bleeding and beautiful blendability!

Thanks go to Lori Craig this week for coming up with the awesome sketch! You can visit Taylor's blog HERE to see it!

I love your card Sherrie! I just purchased some of the new Copic X-Press It card stock from Ellen - last week. I use a Copic layer and then use Prismacolor pencils over the Copic layer. I wasn't sure I liked the new paper with pencils. Since it is so silky smooth. But I have been working with it more and it is growing on me! I think it is actually making it easier to blend with the pencils over the Copic layer. I usually have used PaperTrey Ink's White Stamper's Select card stock. Anyway, I check your blog regularly and never have left a comment and figured it was time I did! Thank you for all your tips!
