Card Dare no.2

The second dare was up yesterday & it was this:
"Use The Kitchen"
The theme was open so you didn't have to make a specific type of card, But the dare was, you had to either have something from the kitchen on the card or have used something in the kitchen to make it...
My card is a nature one & I baked this salt dough plaque in my oven after making the dough with flour, water & a bit of olive oil....It is coloured using watered down green food colouring as at the time I had no acrylic paint!!!
The design isn't very clear to see on the photo, but is a stylised tree, fashioned with a cocktail stick...

I did have another one which I made for my sister to celebrate Autumn & it is gorgeous but sadly the camera was flat at the time & the card was scanned so the image is blurred. I may post it later just so it can be seen.

You are very innovative Paula. My brain hurts just trying to think of something for the dare...

Great use of kitchen-y materials Paula! I wouldn't dare even turn the oven on (or know how to...)

Very classly card, and why on earth didnt I think of salt dough!

Did you make as much of a mess with the food colouring as I did? I still am covered

I love the green and silver, Paula. I've never tried salt dough before, but tempted to give it a try now.

Lovely card Paula, looks very very nice :)
So sorry to hear your very sad story about the Teddy. I'm so glad you have another teddy now to keep you company. Thank you for telling me the story, it really brought me to tears.
A big hug from The Netherlands
