The "Grill Master's" Birthday


I'm really loving the latest images released by Whimsie Doodles.
The moment I saw Smokin' Hot Koale I knew I wanted to make a birthday card for my brother. Who is the "Grill Master" when it comes to anything barbequed.

Here again I used some of my new paper, yay! The new lines of designer papers that some of these scrap booking companies are bringing out are really hip, cute and cool. This designer paper is by Echo Park and there hasn't been a kit thus far I haven't fallen in love with by them.
A brilliant red with a modernized gingham paper, so very appropriate for this cooking card. My favorite thing about this card is how the BBQ itself turned out, it looks just like a real BBQ speckled and all. I used Copics to colour the image.

I used this Saturday's sketch from The Sweet Stop:



And an older color combination from the ColourQ:


Next up is Christmas, I'm trying to get going on those projects that I seriously need to start making. Keep watching for that in the up incoming weeks :)
