Eggs & Bacon !

Hi! Hope you've all eaten..I was feeling a little peckish and had great fun creating this. I've created it using our new brand Reverse Confetti's products- and it's not at all from sets you'd expect.
The bacon? Well, that's an easy one..

One of the brilliant things about this die, is that each wave is equal, so it means you change the order of the waves to stack them- and I've used them simply in the background too.
For the bacon I used white cardstock and coloured it with an unusual combination of Gold ink & Plumberry Mama Elephant ink

 To get the texture, I gently dabbed a nearly dry babywipe onto the ink pad and smeared the ink onto the cardstock. Because there's a little wetness on the wipe, it's a quick and easy way to spread ink. Once I'd got a combination I was happy with, I gently bent the bacon to give it a look of the real McCoy and then added a little Glossy Accents (for the glistening fat look!..yumm!). Before the Glossy Accents dried, I dabbed the babywipe back onto it, to stop it looking too uniform.
For the egg?
See the icing and the centre? there's the egg. It's out of stock- but now you've a wonderful gadget where you can fill in the 'email me when it's back in stock' next to any out of stock item to keep on top of the new stock when it comes in.
The stamp set I've used is another Reverse Confetti set

I've obviously just used the bottom part of the sentiment- and scattered some of the teeny hearts around.
It's a fun card to send to anyone you love/like or who just likes a good old cooked breakfast!
Where's the sausages and beans?

See you next week
