Little Fat Chef

Hi and welcome!  It's time for another great sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and this week our hostess is Jen Mitchell, who makes the most gorgeous cards!


For my card, I had to use this adorable little chef!  I've been coloring these chefs as part of The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge and thought it was about time one made it onto a card!



I went for a simple layout as the sketch is such a classic one - and I really liked the linear look.  To give the chef a jaunty look, I put white polka dots on his red bandanna.  The rest of the card is fairly self-explanatory, so I'll leave you with a close-up.


Thanks for visiting.  The rest of the design team have some wonderful cards using this sketch, so be sure to check them out.


Products used:

Stamps:  Recipe for Happiness (MFT)
Ink:  Black Licorice Hybrid (MFT), Smoke (SSS)
Cardstock:  White, Soft Stone (PTI), X-Press It, Dots & Stripes Neutrals (MFT)
Dies:  Recipe for Happiness (MFT), Blueprints 23 (MFT)
Accessories:  Copics, white gel pen

Cheers
Karren

Love your design, especially the simple graphic background with the constrastive lines (the black ones and the stitched ones)! And the little chef's such a fun character for a focal image. Beautifully colored. By the way, thanks for chosing my Gorjuss card as a winner for the last FMS challenge. :)
