Chef Charlotte


Have you seen the Humorous Seniors stamps over at I Brake for Stamps? This is one of their newest ones called Chef Charlotte, and I can sooooooo see myself looking like this in another 20 years. LOL

I stamped Chef Charlotte and colored her with Copic markers, and then cut her out. I used the Distressed Papers technique on the designer papers in the background, and you can see where I got a little too carried away with the distressing on the upper left side. Oops! :-)

Just a little tip - you can use Copic markers to color your brads if they are not quite the right shade. I used a green Copic marker to color some yellow brads on this card. It worked out pretty good, huh?

I hope you have a wonderful week. Just a few more days til the weekend!!

I'll bet you've got longer than 20 years before you look like this, Holly! It's a cute stamp. I love how you've cut it out. Great colors and design, too!
