I was at home trying to get my MOJO back yes I hadnt been feeling my self so I am back. I got a few questions on the chocolate card I made.. I saw this technique on one of the projects featured in my Favorite Craft Magazine, Magnolia INK ... Love love love that magazine... So here is how I achieved the look. I havent mastered the blue but I am working on it.. first you stamp out your image, I use Georgia Pacific White Card stock 110lb from Walmart, because that is what I can Afford and is closest to me lol... Next I use my Tuxedo Black Momento Ink. I use this because it doesnt stain my copics yes COPIC SKETCH MARKERS. They are my fav... I took the brown and cream families and did alot of shading and blending...
for the blue I did the same thing I am still working on the hair..coloring...
here is the link to the blog event :
so here we go...
