BBQ Chester

It's another challenge day at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and this fortnight we're challenging you to use the colors Kraft, Red and White!  Make sure you head on over to the LMMS Challenge blog to check out all the other DT creations - they're fabulous!!  For my project, I decided to take this opportunity to try coloring with Copic markers on Kraft paper and this is what I ended up with...

I used BBQ Chester from Little Miss Muffet Stamps drawn by Pollycraft.  In the background I also used the accessory chef hat that comes with this stamp to create a custom background paper suited for the theme.  :D  The butterfly is chipboard embellishment from Make it Crafty and the tag is a diecut from Stampin' Up (I think.)

Here's a close up of Chester.  I loved how his skin color turned out, however, I would have like to have the white more... well, white!  LOL  Maybe next time I'll try paper piecing and see how that works. 

It's raining outside this evening here in Texas which got me to wonder, how many different ways there are to describe rain. I've heard that Eskimos have an unusually large number of words for snow (see HERE for a good chuckle.)  However, is it true for rain too?  I've found a few sites that will list some by my favorite so far is one from BBC News titled "Fifty Words for Rain."  Out of that one... my favorite, and most fitting for the weather outside is ... "Raining Stair-rods: Any garden furniture not taken indoors floats away. Reporters on 24-hour news channels began using words torrential and holding their hands out with their palms upturned."  So in other words, I need to hurry up and click on "Publish" before I loose power for the night!  LOL
