GC62 and PDCC41 Challenges

This tag is playing double duty today at Gingersnap Creations and The Play Date Cafe! For the Spicy Supply Challenge - Markers, any type of markers! The pasta, meatballs, bowl, serving platter, hat band, cuff, pants and shoes were colored with SU markers! PDCC41 has chosen Italian colors! The first thing that came to mind was using "Mr. Chef" and I went online to print out a map of Italy. The map was stamped on and then cut, added to give a little dimension on his coat and hat. A separate chef was also cut out (including mustache). We did lose one curl and had to marker it in!!! All stamps and markers are Stampin Up. The tag background was done with Distress Inks.

It is a pleasure to have a visit with you!  Many thanks for taking the time to comment!
