I Knead You....

You know what Saturday means around here - another great OCC Challenge! This week Wendy has challenged us to use these colours in our creations. I can't wait to get my hands on Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso - but for now Chocolate Chip and Riding Hood Red were great subs!

I spent awhile on this one, paper piecing every part of that cuteeeee image. The bowl and measuring cup were shaded with watercolour crayon in Bashful Blue and covered in a layer of Crystal Effects. I don't like the CE to be too smooth for this kind of application - a little texture looks great, so I apply it with a rubber brush.

The awesome layout comes from the ever talented Mercy!
For my interior sentiment, I only inked part of the word kneaded and added a couple of words from another set. This is a great way to get more out of any sentiment stamps.

I hope you'll play along with our wonderful design team this week - you can't go wrong with these colours!
