Happy Birthday Kirk!
Tonight we are celebrating my brother-in-law's birthday. If you knew him you'd know he's a "meat" man...and VERY hard to shop for! Ha! Since one of his gifts we are giving him is bacon inspired I thought I should make a card to match. So bacon and eggs it is!
For the eggs I simply freehand cut the shape out of Whisper White card stock. Then I gently sponged Crushed Curry ink around the edge so it looks a little "buttery". The yolks are two 1 3/8" Circle Punches of So Safron card stock that I sponged with Crushed Curry ink until I achieved the look I was going for.
The bacon strips believe it or not began as one long strip of Sahara Sand card stock. I simply sponged on Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze and Cherry Cobbler ink until it started to resemble the color of bacon. I then took Cherry Cobbler and Cajun Craze Stampin' Write Markers and added the lines along with the Signo White Gel Pen for highlights. I tore the piece into two separate pieces to make the 2 strips of bacon and crinkled them up good with my hands. What do you think? Looks good enough to eat doesn't it? Hopefully he likes it too! Happy Stamping!
