ATCs - Cooking/Food Theme

I recently joined an ATC (Artist Trading Card) group who trade on a monthly basis. The September theme was Cooking/Food. I started out by stamping, coloring and cutting out the My Favorite Things al la mode Time to Celebrate image. I added some Ranger Stickles for some sparkly icing and then relied on the uber cute and vibrant Doodlebug Bon Appetit paper and stickers collection for the rest of the design.

Products: My Favorite Things stamp, Doodlebug dp and stickers, Ranger Stickles, Copic Markers

Copics: Skin-E000, E00, E11; Hair-E33, E55, E57; Capris-R22, R24, R27; Tee/Shoes-BG70, BG72; Cake/Plate-B0000, Y21, Y23, Y35, YG21, YG23

I made an extra one for the hostess. I wanted it to be the same theme but yet be different. I used the My Favorite Things Flappers in the Kitchen as my focal point and then added a punched silverware piece, using the reverse rather than the actual punches. I've had that All Night Media punch in my stash for a very long time. Actually, I picked it up when I was working on a contract in New York City several years ago. There was this great stamp store The Ink Pad in the Chelsea area that I visited at least once a month. It's nice to know that I'm still using my purchases from there years later.
