Tania Baking

Hello all! Hope you are having a wonderful week. =)


I have this image colored a little while ago and just wanted to make it into a card.


The beautiful stamp is from Belles 'n Whistles called Tania Baking. I think she is a beauty and I always wonder what she is making. LOL! When I started stitching on it, I made the mistake of leaving the sewing machine on zig zag which I used on the background right under the seam binding. I was all #*&@ing after the first 3 or 4 stitches, I then decided to just make it look "intentional." =)


I paired Tania with the yummy Curio collection from BasicGrey. I adore the pretty paper in this collection and they also have a few very pretty silhouette designs in their accessaries. Check them out here! I spritzed the paper doily and the sentient oval with tea dye reinker + water + Perfect Pearl. The seam binding is dyed with barn door and the sentient is from the Strawberries set by Flourishes.

That's all for now. Hope you are enjoying the last few days of 2010! =)

Beautiful layout, love your DPs and the doilie. Your coloring is gorgeous too!

Wow, this is just amazing, Alice! Your colouring is out of this world. I thought you popped part of her with dimensionals but it's the shading! I'm sure you could make a career out of teaching people like me how to use Copics!! I love the papers, your stitching and the doily!
