Follow The Recipe #21

It's time for the "Follow The Recipe" challenge at Catered Crop. Each challenge, the top chefs stir up their own recipe using the ingredients of the winning entry from the last challenge, which was Sara's entry.  In her darling creation, she used these ingredients...

Colors – Vintage tones (sepias, gold, cream, muted greens)
Papers - Design Paper (K&Co), torn book page, doily, paper scraps
Stamps – flowers, leaves, sentiment
Color Mediums – Distress inks, Archival ink, Crackle, Viva Gold, cream paint
Embellishments – ribbon, lace, mini-tag, button, press-studs, thread
Techniques – stamped resist technique (on bird), stitching, Grunge Rose, sewing, distress
Tools – Die cuts - bird, cage, flower
Themes –Vintage, tag, bird cage

And here's what I created using some of Sara's ingredients (my ingredients are listed in red).  It's a perfect Fall/masculine card, but not with the traditional Fall colors you would expect.

If you are so inclined, check out the "Follow The Recipe" challenge at Catered Crop. It's a fun challenge with lots of artistic latitude. Chances are that that card, tag, or 3-D paper project you have in the making meets some of the ingredient criteria. Look and see for yourself. Hopefully, we will see you there.

I'm also linking this up to these challenges.

I love what you did, masculine cards are so hard to create, but you nailed it. Believe it or not, we have one of these crazy phesants running around the neighborhood where the beach is not developed and every once in awhile he pops on the road to say hi...

Have a great day
