Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge #19
Happy 2010! Wow, I can't believe it! I think we have a fun challenge for you this week. Just about everyone I know loves chocolate, but this week's inspiration piece is some chocolate that won't ruin your waistline: Chocolate Box Soaps from Terrain. (Sorry the photo isn't bigger - it's the best I could get. You might be able to see the patterns larger if you go to Terrain's site.)
I'm still having fun with my new products from the Occasions Mini. For this card I wanted to use the Very Vintage wheel with the Vintage Vogue set. I chose chocolate chip, so saffron, and really rust for my colors. Using naturals white cardstock for my base, I first stamped the damask from Friends 24-7 in chocolate chip down the left side. Next I used the wheel with saffron ink to make a background panel and stamped on of the Vintage Vogue flower images in the corner with chocolate chip. The large F was inked with rust and chocolate chip with the rock 'n roll technique, then layered onto chocolate chip and rust cardstock. I used the eyelet border punch on one edge of the rust panel. Then I stamped the large flower with saffron craft ink and embossed it - hoping to make it pop just a bit more, and I think it worked. I put a chocolate chip corduroy button in the center. When I put it all together I added the strip of chocolate chip satin ribbon, but it looked really bare. So for a finishing touch I chose three little saffron buttons (from Fresh Favorites) tied with hemp twine and adhered with mini glue dots. I'm loving the end result!
