Greetings friends. Today I have more of the new items, and this time it is all about chocolate! I was thrilled with this new stamp set:

I love chocolate. I love humorous sentiments- sold! For the first card, I used the new heart stencil to sponge color as a background for my sentiment. I stamped the sundae on a separate piece of paper, colored it with Copic markers and layered it onto my card. To  finish the card, I added some patterned paper to the background.

For my second card, I first made a watercolor background on watercolor paper and added my sentiment and cut out truffle. I used 140lb watercolor paper, wet the paper with a wet paintbrush where I wanted the color to remain and then painted color on top. It was a means to have a little bit of control over uncontrollable watercolor. I was able to create a bit of a rectangle for the backdrop.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
