LIM Chocolate, mmmmmm

Oh! yes! CHOCOLATE and Pink forgot about that bit LOL
Hi everyone, hope all is good in your world today:0) I have made a card for Less is More and I'm early (for me that is) :0) Chrissie and Mandi have challenged us to make a card with pink and brown in it, well brown means chocolate doesn't it?


'Man cannot live on Chocolate alone but a woman can!' Just about sums it up really tee hee!


I made my chocolates from a set of Gel-a-tins stamps funnily enough called Chocolate :0) Stamped onto card , coloured then Diamond glaze added and cut out, just a little TIP here if you have a white rim around you can colour with copics to conceal, I'm sure you know this but sometimes if you're new to stamping it helps:0) That's how I learned.
The Suchard label stamp is Tim Holtz, stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia and Distress ink, Spun Sugar sponged underneath.
Have a lovely day, Gay x
