I've been wanting to use my Recipe for Happiness set again for a while now as this little chef is too cute to sit languishing in my stamp collection. So today was the day!
I decided to take the four squares from the sketch and turn them into a window with the help of MFT's Classic Windows die. Onto a white top-folding card base I masked out the centre of the window and sponged over the English Brick Wall stencil with Grout Gray ink. I then masked the brick wall stenciling and stenciled the clouds with the Mini Cloud stencil.
The window components were cut with Cement Gray and Blueberry cardstock. I also added some acetate behind the window panes. The sentiment was white-embossed onto a black strip cut with the Slanted Sentiment Strips die.
Finally, I stamped and colored the little chef and then die-cut him with the co-ordinating die. He is popped up on foam tape and grounded on the sentiment strip. And I know you generally have shutters on the outside of windows, but these were too cute not to use 😄
Thanks for visiting!
