The Muppets' Swedish Chef

When I saw the fab sketch over at Sketch Saturday I knew I would have to play along if I could. I have used this brill drawing of the Muppets' character, the Swedish Chef by residentlilly at DeviantArt which I coloured with Promarkers & typed up the message along the side on the PC.  The 'pie' embellishment  was constructed in 3 layers before being inked using 2 Tim Holtz Distress Inks.  Once these layers were stuck together I gave it all a sprinkling with white gel pen dots for a light icing sugar dusting & then an 'egg-wash' - otherwise known as a dose of Anita's 3-d glaze. LOL. I also used the same glaze on the 3 card 'brads' along the bottom.

On the inside.
The Chef makes a reappearance on the inside alongside cooking utensil embellishments I created on the Cameo & again inked at the edges.  I was actually going to pop these on another card but seemed too perfect for this one to miss out on using.  I also used my Cameo to create the cupcakes.  I have made cake designs before but they were pre-Cameo so were larger & cut carefully with pinking shears. This time of course, I could go tiny - but this made colouring them with my Promarkers just that little bit more tricky. One, as you can see, I coloured to give it some Sprinkles before setting the 'cake' up ever so slightly using a dab of glue-gel but the second cupcake has a circular sentiment from Rockin' Digis. I made a much larger cupcake on the other side, again actually colouring the outer 'paper' & 'cake' using Promarkers.  I kept this icing plain so I can write who it is going to etc later.
