It seems this past weekend I spent the whole time trying out new recipes and then reorganizing my craft room. While I did make a few cards I haven't photographed them yet, and it's dark now when I leave for work in the morning and when I get home, so I may wait till Saturday to load these latest ones up. Luckily I made this cutie recently and hadn't posted it yet:
The image and sentiment are from the set called Weighty Matters by Cornish Heritage Farms. Isn't that dog an absolute cutie!!!
I stamped the image in Espresso Adirondak ink on Aquabee marker paper, and added shading around it in pink with the Copic Airbrush. The gorgeous flourish is cut out of black cardstock using a die cut from Heartfelt Creations called Decorative Butterfly-Border. I layered everything together on top of some SU designer paper and some black grosgrain ribbon.
Now, on to my cooking experiences. So far we've spent about $100 on supplies to make chinese food. We have chili oil, sesame oil, and peanut oil. We have dark rice vinegar, yellow rice vinegar, white rice wine, and yellow rice wine. We've got bean paste, and fermented beans. We have dried chillis, garlic chili sauce and regular chili sauce. Soon we hope to get value from all this LOL! So far we have made 5 dishes. The wonton soup worked well and was yummy. The fried banana and chocolate wontons were WONDERFUL. it went downhill from there, with one dish too spicy hot, the next one too salty, and the last too sour. I'm getting tired of cooking, and more importantly I'm reaching my limit on eating experiments gone wrong. Hopefully the next tries will be more successful! For tomorrow we decided to go back to our regular standard cooking, so it's going to be tried and true chili.
