Hi! Marge here. Anthony and Burt love chocolate -- and so do I! Don't you just love this cute image from the new Anthony and Burt collection, "Never Too Much Chocolate"?
I decided to keep my card today flat and easily mailable, because I like to have some cards on hand that I can mail by dropping it into the mailbox, without having to stand in line at the post office to get it hand canceled. Are you the same way?
I started by stamping the image and greeting in black ink, onto white card stock.
Spectrum Noir alcohol ink markers. Here's the Spectrum Noir marker colors that I used. Love the richness of the colors!
Next, I layered the main image onto a scalloped frame in mossy green, and the greeting onto scalloped red. Then, the hunt was on for background paper. Look what I found in my stash -- it is called "Espresso" and the rings are meant to be coffee. But I decided they looked like chocolate swirls, and the artist's vision always wins ;-). I'll let you in on a secret - this was free artist's paper from the middle of a paper studio magazine.
I then layered it all onto a mossy green base and the card was finished. Oh, I did add some glitter glue to the wings. Sometimes, with a busy image and rich colors, you really don't need to load up with embellishments.
That's all for today. I hope you're enjoying your Sunday...and I'll see you back here next week!
