 Good morning to you all well it is Wednesday again and that can only mean one thing. “COOKING IT UP WITH KATIE” The recipe today is

1. Texture
2. Sketch (I used the one from Sketch and Stash)
3. Punching

We are being sponsored by Gingerloft

We were given a choice of images to use from Gingerloft and I chose this one it was printed off as a black and white image and I coloured their faces with promarkers. The backing paper is from Pink Petticoat and I put the top one through the cuttlebug and punched the bottom of it. Added some ribbon and flowers. I do hope you like

Do pop along to the rest of the DT blogs for some inspiration.
