Hi there, we have a colour challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges this time, we want to see 'Coffee and cream with a hint of dark chocolate'. I was a little confused and had to rack my brains for a while (not easy lol) as I usually use a lot of colour in my projects so sticking to a brown,cream and black colour palette foxed me for a start.
As always our challenge is sponsored by Marina from Cottage Crafts who has another fantabulous prize for our lucky winner.
I decided to make a fun halloween project, based on the idea of a witches brew (or perhaps I should say boo lol). The template for the cup and saucer is from 'Walzing Mouse', cut out of cream pearlescent card. Before I assembled the pieces I stamped them with Halloween stamps from Chocolate Baroque (using stamp sheets:Howling Moon, Boo, Halloween Raven and Halloween Candle - I adore the spooky eyes peeking from the toadstools on this stampsheet!!). I stamped all the images with versamark and embossed with mocha EP and then distressed everything lightly with Black soot distress ink.
Next came the tricky bit, I have to say this isn't the easiest project to assemble and I struggled a little with the footer for the cup, it ended up a bit wonky so i added some brown and black fibres to cover the dodgy bits (ssshhhh don't tell lol)
