Another plaque

Hi everyone, I hope you are all keeping well and happy and that it's not too hot for you.
Isn't it awful, we moan because we've had no Summer and then when we get some hot weather, we moan again because it's too hot (or is that just me?)

Now that most of the work in the house is completed, for this year, I've been able to get in my craft room for a while here and there. So, when my best friend rang the other day to tell me her new kitchen had been fitted and described it to me in detail, I thought I'd make her a plaque to match her new colour scheme. Her units and wall tiles are gloss white and her walls are duck egg blue, doesn't it sound beautiful?
I decided to use one of my Joanna Sheen 'Diva' stamps and colour it to match my friend and her new kitchen.
What do you think? I hope I managed it OK and that she likes it.

The plaques are also from Joanna Sheen and as I enjoyed making the previous couple so much (here and here) I went mad and ordered loads of different shapes.
I thought this oval one would be nice for a kitchen and I didn't want it to look too fussy, so there is still a lot of plain background (Egyptian Cotton paint, left over from our living room)

* Image - Joanna Sheen 'Cooking Diva'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers and pencils
* Papers - Papermania 'Blueberry Hill'
* Dies - Nestability 'Scalloped Rectangles' and 'Labels 4'
* Everything else from my stash

I shan't be making these too often, but it's nice to have a change from cards now and again and I love the way they can be personalised for someone's home.

What a great plaque Chrissie. It certainly made me smile as that was the choice when I was growing up too. TFS. Hugs Rita xx

This is fab Chrissie and I am sure your friend will love it. You are very clever with these plaques, they have all been gorgeous. The weather has been really hot, especially in our apartment.

Hope you are well.
