Cinema Saturday #27

This weeks movie over at Cinema Saturday was Chocolat, another movie I am ashamed to say I hadn't seen until now! The additional recquirement this week was to use a sweet image in your creation - I don't have a lot of stamps that fit that bill and had a little cupcake and a birthday cake pulled out and hoping as I started to watch the movie. But I quickly realised I could turn to an old favourite - Like it a Latte - and it would be perfect since it caters for hot chocolate too. I tried to replicate the cups that Vianne has in her shop so I only inked up the outline and stamped another image inside. I used a strip of Chocolate Chip Patterns DSP, brayering it with Baja Breeze, to replicate the walls of the shop. And of course I had to use Riding Hood Red in honor of the mother and daughter pairs that stray from the normal path.
