GDT card for Crafty little fairies In the Kitchen Challenge

Good morning all

I'm back with my second GDT card for Crafty little fairies, this time the theme is 

In the kitchen

this means we want anything kitchen or food themed
- be as creative as you like !

I used this cute little stamp from Lili of the Valley
called Top Chef available HERE

 I'm looking forward to the summer - and our own outdoor kitchen!
When the weather is good we BBQ all the time - just like this cute little bear
Last year was great - we had such a good summer and we even BBQ'd breakfast at weekends!
- oh I do hope we have a good summer again,evenings in the garden, lovely salads, blackberry Pimms.........

I'm still on my rubber stamps thing and quite enjoying the challenge - it doesn't mean I've abandoned my digis -just making sure I use my lovely rubber stamps as well!  I also did a bit of experimentation on this image by colouring the sky - not something I've done so completely before, its far from perfect but I quite like the effect, it adds colour, I think I'll have to practice some more but you've got to start somewhere,
 for a change I think the picture looks better than the real thing,
 I cut it with a  circle die because I couldn't get the edges right - hows that for honesty!!

I also just kept it to foliage on the trellis for a more masculine card rather than using flowers.
If I don't get a wiggle on and make something else my DH will be getting this for his birthday next week
- well he is king of the BBQ so it would  fit!

This is what I did....

Image - Top Chef from LOTV
Coloured with copics
Sentiment tags - LOTV
Papers - Petal Fresh from LOTV and Kitchy Kitchen from Melissa Francis
Dies - circles - spellbinders, Trellis - Memory box, star - Nellie Snellen
Foliage punch - Martha Stewart
Buttons - Dovecraft

Gems - from my stash
