Dinner Invitation

I was asked to create invitations for a dinner party recently and this is what I came up with. I used the Chef from the Stampin' Up set and stamped extra images on the red checked patterned paper. I cut out the pants, hat and cuff from that paper and layered it over the original image that I cut out.

I colored the image using water color pencils. To distress the edges, I used the fired brick distress ink from Ranger.

I couldn't resist using the cute chef's hat brad and the spoon and fork brads to add some bling.

Road Trip!

Tomorrow, I am headed to Charleston, South Carolina to take a Copic Marker Training Class! After that, I will be certified (perhaps even certifiable!) to teach others how to use the alcohol-based markers. I can't wait!!!
