La-La Weekly Wednesday Challenge 7 - Recipe

This weeks Challenge over at La La Lands Weekly Wednesday Challenge is a recipe challenge. Each of us Guest Designers got to choose an element to add to the recipe - how cool is that!!!

I was busy finishing putting it all together. Had cut out Wizard Maya with a nestie circle and was about to cut out a scallop border when I changed my mind and used one of my new label nesties instead - loved the look and so stuck it down and photographed away. It was only afterwards I realised I had NO SCALLOPS! A mistake which is bad enough, but to make it worse, I was the one who chose scallops as the required element!!! How dumb am I! To rectify, I added some scallops on the inside with a border. I've also added extra paper piercing too.

So what is the recipe? Well, here goes:

  • 2 different patterned papers
  • strawberries, chocolate & cream (red/brown/cream) Color Combo
  • embossing (heat or dry)
  • scallops
  • paper piercing

I've used Chocolate Chip DSP, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa and Real Red Cardstock. Used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the central panel and inked it. Paper pierced the corners and mounted Maya on some nestie die cuts. Wizard Maya is now available from the online shop. Pop over and have a look.
