Fashionable Stamping - definetly no digis, we are asking to see your take on a favourite type of drink, Coffee and Cream even with a hint of Dark Chocolate. Please pop over to the blog, for the description, by our wonderful leader Shirley, is a delicious use of lip smacking words where you can almost feel a warm liquid passing your lips. The samples by the DT are once again a delight to see. For my flavour of Coffee, Cream and a Hint of Dark Chocolate I started with an 8" square card. I stamped the lady musician first, masked her, stamped the backgound music sheets, making sure it was in the centre of the card. I used Memento Rich Cocoa, even the ink fits the theme. In my stash I found an 8" sq. piece of dark chocolate brown, which I carefully tore out the centre section to expose the stamped images. I distressed and inked all the edges of the brown paper, adhered it to the main card. Secured two swirls, one coffee, one cream cut with a Marianne die, added flowers in opposite corners, with smaller flowers in the centre. I further added in opposite corners a pair of filigree metal corners. The final touch being the large gemstones onto a music sheet.
