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.
