Stamp Something Recipe Challenge

It's been a while since I have participated in a challenge over at Stamp Something, since before the holidays I think.  When I saw the challenge this week I knew I was something I would enjoy. The challenge was to make something to do with a recipe. One of the gifts that I plan to give this year are family cookbooks. I am not sure when I am going to get them all done, but this is the first one. I used Kiss the Cook by Hanna Stamps and colored the image in with a combination of Prisma markers and Copics. I colored in the area behind the main image with a cool blue and decided to try my hand at drawing floor boards and coloring them in as well. I have seen several cards lately with the wooden floors, I think the first blog I saw them on was Candace's blog Rubbah Soul. On these composition books, I ran the ribbon from the bottom of the book up to the top and then left enough ribbon that it goes all the way thorough the length of the page to be used as a bookmark. I used the threading water punch around the image. The stamp above the main image is a See Ds stamp, it was a larger stamp that  trimmed down a little to fit in the area that I had. In person, those blues match a little better. I am still working on Kip's computer and it's a Mac. Until mine died I have never used it before. I am still getting used to the photo editing though and haven't quite got the hang of it. Thanks for stopping by today. Let me know what you think of my recipe book!

This is cute Gina. I want to make one for the girls, but I think I am going to take the easy way and make a Tastebook. I want to take photos of all the favorite family meals and get 3 made. Easy peasy! TFS
