This week's Splitcoast Color Challenge was Chocolate Cherry Crumb Cake -- go HEREto view the challenge thread and link up to the gallery! True to the challenge, I layered Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake -- only I picked up the Crumb Cake from the Deck the Halls dsp. I really liked that Crumb Cake ds layer with the Always Artichoke/Cherry Cobbler garland -- I thought that it gave me both the color and a wonderful pattern to play off of for the peeling wallpaper background.
The central image was overstamped with Canvas in Crumb Cake and sponged around the edges with Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip. The lettering was done with an ombre watercolor in Daffodil Delight, More Mustard, Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip.

I've been stamping for about 12 years or so and have been an independent Stampin Up! demonstrator for 8 years. I don't do many workshops, but am mainly a hobbyist -- and love it!
Stamping has given me an outlet for my creativity, for which I am truly grateful. I'm also a member of the Paper Crafters Sampler and the Splitcoast Stampers Creative Crew design teams. I hope that you enjoy my blog!
