Recipe Swap


Ang on the Lotstodo forum is hosting a recipe swap. You have to produce a 4 x 4, a skinny and an atc all containing the ingredients, a stamped image, a word and a piece of ribbon. My 4 x 4 has been created by smothering the background in gel medium. I left a smooth space in the middle for my image to be stamped. When dried, hazelnut, expresso and pearl acrylic dabbers were randomly added. I then stamped my image in the centre with black stazon. A piece of ribbon, 2 buttons and the word 'cherish' were added. It has a really nice texture but it is hard to see from the photo. The skinny was created by splodging texture paste around the perimeter and then using an old credit card which I'd previous cut 'teeth' out of, I dragged it through the paste to create a pattern. When dried I applied pitch black, red pepper and silver acrylic dabbers. I stamped my new image which I got yesterday from Sue's workshop sale table at Paper Paradise onto a piece of card, cut it out, punched a hole, inserted an eyelet and attached a piece of ribbon, making it into a tag. I used 3d foam to mount it onto the background and added the word 'memories' stamped in my Nick Bantock, vermillion laquer. I covered the atc in a backing paper, stamped a flourish or two. Stamped the image onto a separate piece of card, cut it out and stuck it to the atc. Added a piece of bright red ribbon and the word 'beauty'
