Everything ABC Blog Hop- Letter Z

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter Z. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their Z element will be featured in their post.

You are at the beginning of The Everything ABC's Blog Hop at Linda's blog ~ Scrappy Therapy .

Letter Z is for Zesty!  Webster's dictionary defines it this way:

: having a strong, pleasant, and somewhat spicy 
: lively and pleasing : full of zest

My Joshua is very much the second definition!  He is lively and fun to be around!  On this page, he decided to eat the jalapeños from his sister's nachos.  She had asked for them on the side for her zestier brother, Micah, who likes spicy foods!
You can see from the progression of pictures that he thought the pepper was a little more than zesty!

 I dug out and old retired stamp with a jalapeño on it for the journaling box!  The stamp was the May Word Puzzle.  I used Ruby, Topiary, Sunset and Creme Brûlée to give the jalapeño texture!  I used the rock and roll method to layer the inks on!  As you can see no two ever end up the same!
I also used the wave border on the family key on Artbooking Cricut Cartridge and turned it 90 degrees and layered it to get the flames look.  I cut it twice in Ruby and Sunset and flipped one over and layered them to make it look like flames. The left below is what I started with and the right is what I used!

The paper I used for this was the Proplayer paper with additional colors of Creme Brûlée and Sunset added in card stock. I also used the wave border on the family key on Artbooking cartridge and Cricut Craft Room to arrange the "flames" and cut the title!  The alphabet  on Artbooking is so easy to weld in the Cricut Craft Room so you are not having to stick on individual letters but a whole word!

Hope you enjoyed my zesty Z!
