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 Fran├žois) 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 Fran├žois 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!

  1. Ah, I love this! Have I told you lately how much I think your colouring rocks? Probably not - but it SO DOES!! Wonderful card!

    1. Thank you! This one was fun to color - but, of course, I say that for every Birdie Brown image. Can you tell I'm hopelessly addicted? :D
