Chef Old Photos Card

I have one more unique card to share with you today from the Craftin Desert Divas new release using the adorable Chef Trolls stamp set!  I wanted to create an Italian restaurant wall of black and white photos and I think it came out fabulous!

The amazing CDD product I used:

This is my absolute favorite from this April release, I love the cute chef trolls and the size that they are!  To start my card I trimmed some thick white cardstock a little smaller than my card base and inked with the moroccan tile stencil using oxide inks in fired brick & rusty hinge.  I then stamped the sentiment in versafine black ink and set the piece aside.

For the photos, I stamped the cuties and cooking accessories from the Chef Trolls stamp set using memento black ink and colored in copic markers.  The colors I used to get the black and white look are: W00, W0, W1, W3, W5, & W7.  I then die cut three frames from gold foil paper and trimmed the photos to fit behind them.  Next, I laid them out on the card gluing the two on each side and trimming the extra off.  For the center photo, I added some twine using glue dots and added a black brad (time to pull out that stash!) and pop dotted the photo.  Then I adhered to the center of the card with pop dots.

I hope you will try this black and white photo coloring yourself, and visit the CDD blog for more Design Team inspiration!  You can share your creations with us at the Craftin Desert Divas Gallery on FB.  And we have a new April challenge, click the link for all the details!

I am going to leave you with the Chef Trolls all colored up and have a wonderful week!
