Hot Chocolate for the Blue Soul

Yet another 'Like it A Latte' card that uses some form of chocolate in the colour combination! this time I went for a brown and blue colour scheme. I started by sponging Ballet Blue ink on the piece of chipboard until it resembled Brocade Blue, making the edges a little darker, then stamped the sentiment in the middle with Chocolate Chip ink. The steam is Whisper White stamped on Bashful Blue, and underneath the marshmallows were stamped with Chocolate Chip and coloured with a white gell pen. The cup was stamped on Brocade Blue cardstock using Chocolate Chip ink, trimmed and mounted on the Bashful Blue piece. This was then layered on Chocolate Chip and Tempting Turquoise. Bashful Blue stitched ribbon (from the 'Seaside' Ribbon Originals collection) was threaded through the chipboard and secured with a couple of Tempting Turquoise brads, the ribbon ends being wrapped around a layer of Chocolate Chip that was mounted onto the Bashful Blue cardfront, and the cup and marshmallow piece mounted on top with dimensionals.
