Hot Chocolate?.

Evening everyone :)  I thought I would go ahead and post my Hot Chocolate tonight so I could post it on the sketch challenge ;)  Goes right along with my Hot Chocolate I sipped on tonight!  Mmmmm Good! Here is my card:

This is a Meljen's Image - Christmas Cocoa. Love this image! The larger of the two is not decoupaged at all. On the smaller one I popped the actual cup itself and then  the cinnamon stick. I colored this with my Prismacolor pencils. The "Good Cheer" is a Paper Smooches stamp. I added a little bit of stitching on the black paper. I added a little bit of glitter on the steam. The edges were inked in red and the black paper was torn. I added the clear and the green gems, which I have had forever.. I can't even remember how long!  And that is it. Such a fun image!!

Top Tip: When I'm pushing out my image, I use an old mouse pad when I'm using my embossing tool. It gives me just enough cushion to not damage the image yet give it a nice rounding.

As it’s something I really don’t like doing for a whole comment will admit to this being a copy and paste one because I am unable to type properly at the moment, but didn't want to miss the opportunity to take a look at your lovely creation and thank you for joining us at Stamping Sensations challenge.
