Salt 'n Pepper
As you probably know, I'm a huge fan of Torico's work. So, grabbing Recipe for Happiness was a no-brainer. This adorable set features a chef (I call him François) in several poses, along with a few kitchen objects and clever sentiments.
I have a small collection of cooking/baking-themed patterned paper and I thought this stamp would be perfect for them. I started by choosing my paper and adhering it to a top-folding A2 card base (4¼x5½"). I die-cut a stitched circle out of some taupe paper and a sentiment banner out of white cardstock. I curved the sentiment from Recipe for Happiness and stamped it onto a banner.
I stamped François with black hybrid ink onto my marker paper and colored him in with Copics. I kept the coloring very simple and added a couple of details with a white gel pen. I did not get the matching dies for this set, so I simply fussy-cut him, leaving a small white border.
I layered all my elements together and finished the card with 3 small enamel dots.
Thanks for reading!
