BON APPETIT!

Okay, I can honestly say without a doubt that this is my VERY FAVORITE stamp set - the VOILA fat chef and accessories, just love this guy!! It was on my very first order as a demonstrator and he is a much loved and used little guy! This is a swap card I made for a recent swap I participated in. The base of this card is Close to Cocoa card stock, which is layered with a piece of Ginger Blossom Designer Series Paper. The image is stamped on Mellow Moss card stock in black stazon. I used my corner rounder on all the edges to match the "roundness" of my chef - teehee!! I also stamped my image on a piece of the Fall Flowers Designer Series Paper, cut out his jacket and chef's hat, and paper pieced my little guy together! The pants and collar are colored in using my Stampin' Write Markers and a blender pen as is the spaghetti from the Voila Accessories stamp set and the platter. I lightly sponged around the Mellow Moss card stock in the same color and then added a piece of River Rock Double Stitched ribbon. The sentiment is stamped in black stazon ink directly on to the card. This is a simple card but I love the way it turned out! I hope you like it too!! Now, off to finish cleaning up from my crop - I hate putting everything away again after packing it all up - sheesh!!
