***Peach Cobbler Recipe Page published in Rubber Stamp Madness Magazine--Spring 2017***
Hi Friends! How was your week? I hope you had time to do a little crafting. I've been all fired up since my stamping trip to Savannah. The group decided to make a recipe book, so everyone is making a recipe card as a 6" x 6" page to share. I was going to share my bread and butter pudding recipe, but I have the fab peaches stamp from Flourishes, so I opted to go with Peach Cobbler instead.

This is my original recipe page. I used the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch #107 for my layout. All my dp's are digital. They are by Juliana Kneipp, and I originally got them from Design House Digital, but they don't have them there anymore, so I don't have a link for you. I printed the recipe onto a vintage tag that was part of the Old Sweet Times digital pack, then added a kraft tab and eyelet. The ribbon is ivory seam binding that I dyed with Distress Ink Reinkers. I sewed two strips of burlap behind the recipe, and stapled the little "Sweet!" flag to the card.

I did some zig zag sewing on this, and pulled out some of the stitches in one corner. On this particular page, I tried to distress it further by dragging it through water, but I forgot that when you print digital paper and it gets wet, the design completely disappears. Oops! I still kind of like it, and kept it for this page, which will go in my personal recipe book, but for the rest of the pages, I skipped that step.

I colored the peaches with Copics, and love how they turned out, but I needed to make 13 of these, and that just wasn't feasible, given how long it takes me to color with markers, so I went a different route for the rest of them.

This is a picture of the peaches, as I colored them for the rest of the recipe pages. I used Distress Inks and sponge daubers. It's not as "clean" as coloring with Copics, and the leaves aren't as detailed, but I love how they turned out. Even IRL, you can barely see a difference in the Copic peaches and the Distress Ink peaches, and the Distress Ink leaves ended up being a better color for this project. Best of all, though, I was able to color 13 of these images, and cut them out with my craft knife in just a few hours--less time than it took me to color one peach image with Copics.

This is what the entire page looks like with the peaches that were colored with Distress Inks.

And, here they all are, ready to go! I was glad to get them done early, even though they aren't due until April, because several ladies in the group are coming to spend the weekend with me the first weekend in February while they are here for the Lawrenceville Stamp Convention, and I can send them back to Savannah with them, just in case I don't make it down there for the April meeting.

Here's the Peach Cobbler recipe, in case you can't read it in the other pictures. It's actually a "dump cobbler" since you just dump everything in and cook it. It makes a yummy, thick and buttery crust on top that is to die for!

Well, Cheryl, you have certainly set the bar very high for the rest of the Savannah Stampers. I have got to get going with my page. (I WILL NOT BE LEFT BEHIND!!!)

Leslie Miller said...

Wow! What an ambitious project and a super recipe card! It makes baking even more fun when you can pull out something like this to look at. I think your sponge daubed peaches look every bit as good as those colored with Copics. In fact, it's a fabulous idea! Well done all the way around!
