Great news - The Stamping Chef Club is now open!

Hi all!

Today is a special day in the Netherlands! Today our Queen stepped back and our new King is crowned! I have been watching TV all morning and afternoon, and I will check back later! It was a beautiful ceremony, and our new Queen Maxima, wow, she looked AMAZING!

But that is not the only special news I have! Today, we opened a brand new club! My friend Krista and I have been chatting with Tamara from The Stamping Chef a lot recently, to get more publicity in the Netherlands. Tamara is the designer of all those gorgeous images, check out her shop!

You can also join the club if you aren't Dutch, but we only talk Dutch, LOL.
You can find our club here --> CLICK.

We will have a monthly FREEBIE challenge, just like the weekly one on the Facebook page. You can request the freebie image, and by requesting it, you will be joining our challenge. And the winner of the challenge will win more The Stamping Chef images!

This is what I made as an inspiration for May's challenge. The theme is ANYTHING GOES with the requested image, easy right?
The image I used is this months FREEBIE, called BitterSweet. You can also find the image in the shop, just click here. Let me show you a close-up of my colored image.
BitterSweet is colored with my Copic Markers, and I really enjoyed coloring her! I used the following markers.
Skin: E00, E11, E13, and R20 for blush and lips
Hair: E71, E74, E77, E79
Purples: V91, V95, RV91, RV93, RV95
Whites: W00, W0, W2, W5
Leafs: YG91, YG93, YG95
The papers I used are by Authentique, Remembrance collection. I alsways use the 6x6 pads when making cards, and I really LOVE the fact they designed the inside of the frontpage and last page as well! Get more use out of your paper pads!
I matted every layer with kraft cardstock, so there are lots of layers going on on this card!
Of course, the famous me-style flowers! I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Marianne Design and made a little bouquet. For the leafs I used a Martha Stewart punch. I also added some pearls on the corners of my card to give it a finished look.

I hope you all like it and for the Dutch, JOIN OUR CLUB!
