Have you ever seen those chocolate shoes? They are really very neat and I can't imagine actually eating them. But they would be a fun decor item!! As fun as they are, I think chocolate teacups would be even more FUN and NEAT!!!
Over the past few months, I've had the pleasure of getting to know Rebecca, one of the Twinklettes, better. She's a super sweetie and we have many things in common. Awhile back she used a Stampington stamp on a card - one that I own and is a favorite. I love teacups. Especially vintage ones. Not sure why because I'm not a hot tea drinker. Anyway, a few weeks ago I asked Rebecca if she would like to have a mini challenge between us to use that stamp. She agreed and added a few additional requirements.
* use Stampington teacup trio stamp (Cup Collection)
* use Chocolate Chip
* minimum of 3 embellishments - but more welcome - one of which needed to be ribbon
Here's what I came up with. My teacup image was stamped with Memento Cocoa ink and then watercolored with my waterbrush and ink pads: Pink Pirouette, Close to Cocoa, Regal Rose. I used those same colors and a few additional stamps to create a collage style background. I loved that Chocolate Chip wide satin ribbon SU came out with a few years ago. Sure wish they would bring that back. In lots of colors actually. I also used pearls and flowers to finish out this card. There are a lot more than I would normally put on as I tend to use fewer embellishments. What do you think: Over the Top? or Just Right? or Not Enough?
Be sure to visit Rebecca at her blog, Eclectic Endeavors, to see what she came up with for this challenge. I can't wait to head over there myself!!
