Cooking it Up~

It's time for another challenge over at Cooking it Up with Katie and she's got a great recipe to have you all try this week! To play along, here are the ingredients you'll need:

1. Use a digital image
2. Add a little Purple (any shade from Lilac to Plum and it only has to be a little splash to count)
3. Use something 3 times (that could be 3 flowers, 3 different dp's, a 3 word sentiment, your choice as long as it's 3)

This week's challenge is sponsored by Glitterbabe so my digital image came from her.

Actually, I should say digital images because I used this one 3 times. I positioned 2 of the garlands so my print out would have one vertically on the right and one vertically on the left and the third garland was printed separately so I could cut it out. All were colored with Copics and that 3rd garland was added on foam tape for dimension.

Of course I used a good amount of purple in my coloring as well as pink and green to match the gorgeous, sparkly DP. And three ribbons finish my recipe. The sentiment is from a stamp set from Close To My Heart. One card down for Mother's Day, thanks to this challenge.

Want to play along? Then just follow the recipe and link up over at the Cooking blog. I can't wait to see what you come up with! And while you're there, be sure to check out what the other DT members cooked up with this recipe!

Until next time, have a creative day!

So pretty, Mary! Love how the flowers frame the sentiment and how you matted the sentiment on the same pattern paper :) Gorgeous!

Katie said...

This is beautiful!
I love the frame you created with the garlands and the sentiment is perfect.

Hi Teamie. Beautiful and a great idea linking them together. Think I need to find a tutorial on how to do this as I haven't yet given it a go. Fab colouring. Hugs Tracy x
