BBTB2 "Bakery" Challenge
The next three weeks we're trying something a little bit new at BBTB2. The fabulous idea from our lovely and talented Julia was to give a wider berth to creativity and not name a specific cut, but let our imaginations run wild with a theme challenge. This week, it's the bakery. Just imagine the possiblilities here, breads, cakes, pies, donuts, you name it. I, myself am a cookie gal so cookies it is, from the Sesame Street Friends cart. I imagine this tag atop a care package filled with luscious chocolate chip cookies, the giant ones, 'cause this is one honkin' tag! LOL I welded the shadows of the cookies (alternating 4" and 3 3/4") in DS with the shadow of the welded word YUM from Nifty Fifties. When I started stacking them they sort of looked like they were smiling, all in the same direction which looked weird to me. (Didn't think to flip them in DS when I was designing). I was in a bit of a hurry, so I turned over the 2 4" top layers without even changing the darker layers and it still worked (WooHoo!). They are embossed with the Cuttlebug Seeing Spots folder and inked a tad wth Distress.
Not so obvious from the front view, but there is quite a bit of dimension. The whole stack was tied together with red and white gingham ribbon. The regular letter cuts were doodled a bit with gel pen and embossed with Swiss Dots and that was it. There are much more fabulously elaborate bakery treats from my DT sisters, so be sure to visit BBTB2, but don't go on an empty stomach or you'll be sorry. YUM!
I'm hoping everyone had a fabulous Mother's Day. Scroll down (if you dare) in my Macabre Monday post to see Goliath's little surprise for me. Cats, gotta love 'em! He was quite proud of himself. LOL
