I was inspired by the blues, chocolates, cocoa and marshmallows in this photo. Although the sentiments in the set are for tea, I am pretending it is a cup of cocoa. She was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics. I used Copic Xpress it card stock. I find this is the best card stock for me to blend colors together.
The sketch is from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. I turned the sketch on the side and added the sentiment strip. The card was aged with Distress Inks in Tea Dye and Vintage Photo. The papers are from an older paper pad from My Mind's Eye Indie Chic collection, it is called Nutmeg. Perfect for this challenge!
I added some pearls to mimic the steam coming up from the hot cup of cocoa (tea).
