Such an easy and quick card to make...
I took a piece of watercolor paper and swiped some distress stains over it. Here I used Faded Jeans, Fired Brick and Peeled Paint.
I used my heat gun to dry the stains. Then I stamped this Penny Black stamp with VersaMark ink stamping it over top of the stains, then added seafoam white embossing powder. I heat set the powder, added a sentiment and some gemstones and I was done.
In a blender add 4-5 roasted red peppers, a clove of garlic,
1 Tbsp. red wine vinegar, 1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard,
salt and pepper.Whiz it around and then slowly add 1/4 cup of olive oil. Before serving add fresh chopped Italian parsley and 2 Tbsps. capers.
Refrigerate until ready to use on the salmon.
I made of rub of brown sugar, salt and pepper, cumin and hot Spanish paprika, rubbed it on the salmon and refrigerated it for most of the day.
First off, I used some Peeled Paint and Faded Jeans distress stains on plain white cardstock and let them dry. I then stamped the image in black versafine ink on the stained piece and then again on some bits and pieces lying on my work table.
I cut them out and placed them on the already stamped image.
The background piece is stamped with Stormy Sky distress ink. It is the French Script from Stampin' Up.
I also used a little faded jeans distress ink around the edges. The seam binding was white and I ran some Faded Jeans distress stain over it to give it some color. When it was dry I tied the bow and added a tag and sentiment from Papertrey Ink.
But when I am in a hurry I let my bread machine do the work for me.
1 cup water
3 Tbsps. olive oil
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 teaspoons bread machine yeast
2 hours later you have a nice soft dough.
I made a quick no cook sauce from a tin of
San Marzano tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, dried basil and salt and pepper.
I had a hunk of Fontina cheese and Mozzarella which I grated *** I love a cheesy pizza!!
Bake it until it is bubbly and browning around the edges..
I added some torn fresh basil from my garden as well***
I add a good sprinkling of pepperoncino because I like spicy***
So if you have a bread maker that has been collecting dust, get it out and make pizza tonight for dinner***
