Voila it's your Birthday!

Yesterday I received my Koh-I-Noor pencils from Gina K so I had to play today :) It's my first time using Odorless Mineral Spirits and blending stumps as well, so it was a lesson learning day for me! I found that you press lightly with the pencil and they will blend better. But overall, I enjoyed these new tools and plan to make good use of them!

I haven't used my Voila chef for a while and I'm thrilled that he's staying around for another catalog!!! I still plan to get the additional stamps that SU sells so that I have more to put on his tray!

I was actually wearing a shirt this shade of purple today, so I guess that's where the color idea came into play. I also pulled out my Cuttlebug with the Tapestry background, I thought it reminded me of a restaurant's wallpaper :) The floor is pencils that I blended to soften the lines.

Stamp Set: Voila
Cardstock: Orchid Opulence, Perfect Plum, Pink Passion, Whisper White
Accessories: Light Orchid Grosgrain, Silver HP, Corner Rounder
