As sweet as pie!! Sweet things at anything goes..

Hey the bloggers,
Well here I am with my dt piece for anything goes challenge blog this week @ http://anythingchallenge.blogspot.com/.
I have gone for another vintage feel piece this week as I don't have any really cute, sweet images...these vintage baking stamps from creative expressions are fab.So here she is:
I divided the background into three, rather than my usual two as I wanted to add the corrugated texture and build up layers of interest.The left hand side is corrugated card, with DI rubbed over the top and the middle section is made using DI, no shock there then!!! And over stamped with rolling pins and the left hand side is using distress inks and over stamped with hearts.
The elements are stamped with walnut stain onto card pre coloured with antique linen...my favourite!!!
The tag was a small chipboard tag painted and then coloured, be aware the paint absorbs some of the ink and softens then colours.I added paper strong to continue the vintage feel.
The little hearts were cut out from border stamp and then added to pie and background.

To finish I added..mmm,mmm,Good! And a mini rolling pin and spatula...from stash..think these are dolls house accessories!
The last touch was a little bit of crystal glitter.
I am entering this for the following competitions:
