Great Cooks ATC


This ATC was made by first stamping a mask of the polymer frame stamp (My Minds Eye), then stamping again with onyx black Versafine ink onto a white card blank.  The mask was then used and a text stamp from MME was then inked with london fog Memento ink to fill in the background.

I then took a rubber stamp of a rather stern looking lady (Tuscan Rose) and stamped this into the frame centre. The frame was painted with Viva gold paint and a fine paintbrush to gild it followed by a wash of broken china Distress re-inker.  The ladies face was then coloured with a pinkish Marvey Le Plume II pen.  Two lines were drawn in fine black permanent ink to represent hanging wires and a pewter brad applied as the hanger.





The words were printed and stuck on and a self adhesive dome sticker applied as shown.  The card was finished with beige Versamagic chalk ink to the edges.

Don't know why, but she reminded me of one of those rather stern Victorian cooks so I made her a cook and she is cook No.2 in a series yet to be completed. I'm sure I will find countless other stamps of stern ladies in my collection.
