Follow the Recipe #12!

Hello! Guess what, I stamped again! Yay! :-) And this time I played along with the Top Chef Quickfire for the Follow the Recipe #12 challenge! I also got to ink up my *gorgeous* Guiding Light set from WPlus9 - love!

Did I mention I loooove this set? So many gorgeous stamps to work with! I want to give a HUGE thanks to WPlus9 for this set, it's truly beautiful. Some of my caramel stamping didn't really photograph well, so here's another angle...

The inspiration card for FTR#12 is a real beauty from Grace Nywening.

I focused on several elements from her recipe, including:
  • Colors – brown, blue
  • Stamps and Stickers – nautical, light house, sentiment
  • Color Mediums – stamp ink
  • Embellishments – twine/hemp rope
  • Tools – die cuts (tags)
  • Techniques – make a scene
  • Theme – masculine, Father's Day
The FTR challenge is so much fun - and so easy to play along! I hope you'll join us this week!

For the design of the card, I also played along with Tiff's Sketchy Sunday! I really love her tag inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by today!
