Alota Julia Bug Does The Baking

I recently got a super-nice surprise, it was an email from Helene, the owner of Alota Rubber Stamps, asking if I would make a card for her. She had been sent a picture of a card I made for the Quixotic Paperie Challenge by Elaine. The card used the fabulous Alota Rubber Stamp Stove (which was one of those stamps I just knew I had to have as soon as I saw it!) stamped onto metal.

Well Helene has got the card now so I can show it to you all. It has the gorgeous Julia Bug baking on her shiny metal stove.

I’ve stamped onto metal then manipulated the metal to add dimension, the other items are pieced on in paper or metal.

The lovely Julia is coloured with PrismaColor pencils and paper pieced.

There is more yummy baking on the inside as well – Julia has been busy!

Wasn’t that the nicest of surprises? Thank you so much both Elaine and Helene!

Alota have their own challenge blog which I hope to have a play along with when I can and also you can catch them on Papercraft Planet – in case you haven’t caught up with them there already.

So how you all set up for the week? I’ve got lots of card making and stitching to do this week, hopefully I can get some blog hopping in as well to see all your gorgeous makes.

Catch you later
