Sugar Nellie Chef Hamish

A card for CCT Challenge which is 'In the house'. I chose this cute Chef Hamish image which I received in a swap. I couldn't quite get the colouring right as the paper was reacting in a very strange way with the inks for some reason and I ended up doing more and more to try and cover it up! The image is cut out with the large plain circle nestability and coloured with Ranger distress inks. I inked and doodled all around the embossed edge with a Sakura silver pen. I stamped the sentiment and the little flowers for wallpaper. The card blank is cut using the large scalloped circle nestability (I saw this style of card on someone's blog but can't remember where, but thought I'd try and work out how to do it, thank you whoever you are) and the image was layered on top and finsihed with silver metallic ribbon. TFL.
Back soon,
Chris
