A Match Made in Food Heaven

I had a quick little work trip this week, so I haven't gotten to craft for several days and was so happy to be able to do a little creating this evening.  This card is for Sweet Stamp Shop's April Challenge, and uses the Perfect Match stamp set.

I've had this idea rattling around in my head for a couple weeks now.  Originally I was going to pair the hot dog and ketchup stamps, but after playing with it for a bit, I decided that ketchup and mustard worked a little better. 

For mustard's outfit, I cut out both a white and black middle band.  On the black band I snipped just a bit in the middle, at the top, and then folded down the 'collar'.  Then I cut, very carefully, a tiny little bowtie.....a good pair of fine details scissors is so worth buying, just love mine!

For ketchup's outfit I cut a white center band and I layered some delicate crocheted lace that I got from Hydrangea Hippo over top.  For the head piece, I used the cap portion of the stamp (using white cardstock), and on the ridges of the cap I used liquid glass to adhere some small seed beads.  I put another thin layer of liquid glass over top of the beads to make sure they stuck and give it a little extra shine.

I got some tulle by the yard from Joann's and cut a very small piece for the front veil, and a larger piece for the train.  To adhere the train, I used a Dodz adhesive piece, and I used dimensional foam tape (two layers for the ketchup) to attach ketchup and mustard. 

I hand drew the mouths of the couple as well as some eyelashes for ketchup.  And, of course, ya gotta have some googly eyes for a card like this. 

So much fun, this one makes me smile and I hope you're smiling too.

Have a great weekend!
