Chocolate from the garden

Happy Tuesday. I have been such a bad blogger, letting so many days go by without a post. Here is a card I made yesterday for the mini VSN challenge on splitcoast. The challenge was to use the split negative technique. Instead of using the typical black and white, I chose chocolate and vanilla.

This hostess stamp is the first one I ordered from the current SU catalog and I hadn't used it yet. I inked it up with versamark and stamped the image on pieces of chocolate chip and vanilla that were lying side by side. The I put ivory embossing powder on the chocolate piece and brown ep on the vanilla and heated them. I glued them to a piece of cheap card stock, making sure that the two sides matched up. Then I trimmed it down to fit the card and matted on close to cocoa and a vanilla card base.

Because this stamp is so large, it doesn't leave much room on the card for anything else, so the only other thing I added is the double photo corner with caramel eyelets. All in all, a pretty simple card.

stamps: from the garden (SU)
ink: versamark
paper: very vanilla, chocolate chip, close to cocoa
other: ivory and brown embossing powder, heat tool, photo corner punch, crop-a-dile, caramel eyelets

I'm so glad you stopped by.
