This week Michelle picked the theme on TioT and it's yummy yummy Chocolate. This is a free choice, as long as you stick to the theme you can make whatever you like. Not long ago it was Michelle's birthday (Happy Birthday although it's a bit late) and her 1st wedding anniversary I can't believe how time flys. I haven't got a new cooker(it's been ordered now so few more weeks now. I lasted over 2 month without oven) so I couldn't bake. So I had to make a card. I was going to make something else but then I went to see my friend who is not well and had no time so it's gonna be for an other challenge.
Here is my offering
Joanna Sheen stamps
Cutllebug die/embossing folder
Ribbon from stash
Tim Holtz distress inks
I have inked up my folder before placing my paper inside, this way I got this lovely effect and where it's been inked up the embossing is colour. Next I embossed/die cut my card base and just placed the other one on the top, but before I done that I put a ribbon round it. I stamped my sentiment with TH ink and strait away I used a wet brush too pull the colour then I edged it with darker ink but not to visible on the pic.
Inside there is a bar of chocolate. I stamped with TH ink and again used a wet brush to push the colour round where it was needed, on the chocolate itself I used darker brown too. The chocolate cover is coloured with silver pro-marker. Just realised I forgot to take a close up on my chocolate bar. I think the reason for this cos I was thinkig of having some choc lol I never had any though
I'm really sad cos this folder is not mine. Soon I got to give it back to my friend. I think I might have to get it myself although we did agree we wont get the same things so we can swap round but I just LOVE this one just goes with any kind of card type
I have to tell you the DT came up with some fab ideas, just pop over to the TioT blog and have a look
