Lulu Thanks You...

For one of my friends who placed a card order with me.  She recently became a Pampered Chef Consultant and asked if I'd make her a card for one of her hostesses.  She asked for a card that was green and brown with an apron type theme.  I sent her the link to Stamping Bella's Lulu's Two Pies and another stamp set and asked which she preferred, she said this one...that it looked like a "Tanya Card"=)  Yes, I {heart} my SB stamps!

Anyhow, I did my norm, Neenah, Memento, and Copics.  I added a Glaze Pen to the pie tins and her shoes.  Stickles to her apron.  I went over her hair and the hem of her dress with a multi-liner.  I added some depth to the greens with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.  I paper pieced her oven mitts.  Crumb Cake, Jillibean papers, SU Border Punch, Lucky Limeade Ribbon, Linen Thread, and a Button.  My sketch is this weeks CPS152, my image was too big for an oval so I just went with a rectangle.  This is also my entry for this weeks Bellariffic Friday Challenge which is Anything Goes.
I was on Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Blog Hop today and came across Elaine from Quixotic Cards.  She did this cool color chart she called a Color Map and thought, what a great idea!  She's using a marker that is new to me (ShinHan Touch Twin Marker) and not Copics, but I still love the concept.  There's been a couple times I loved how a color combo turned out on a card I made, went back to look at the card and for the life of me couldn't remember what colors I used=(  So, I hope to do this for now on, for my own reference and if it helps someone else out as well, then great!

Thank-you for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
