Don't Peek ;D...

...if you are a part of Durcan Design's ATC swap and you don't want to see my submission. (click on any photo to enlarge for details) LOL I just love how these turned out. I decided to use some of the new JJ stamps that I just got for my birthday, see this post. The swap was no vendor restrictions and with at least 2 layers. I had fun making these and I learned something new too. Using JJ Chef Bella I wanted to incorporate the vintage colors red, turquoise and black. Just love that color combo. I wanted to use a white on black base and I just didn't have the pattern paper I was looking for. GO FIGURE! So duh lightbulb went off and I decided to use one of my SU backgrounders (the paisley print) on black cs with white craft ink. So using my brayer I stamped the black cs with white craft ink. It turned out to be just what I was looking for. I learned that white craft ink stamped on black card stock is B E A U T I F U L! Will definitely be using it again. I stamped Chef Bella with a permanent black ink, colored her shirt with a turquoise su marker to give it the vintage apron feel. I was also very happy to use some of my scrap ribbon. I just love my little "ribbon bursts" that I created by using 4 different ribbons to create the bow. I also used liquid appliqué for the chef hat. Sorry for the blurriness of the photos. I think my camera is on it's last leg. Enjoy...misspriss~
