I love chocolate, particularly dark chocolate, so when I came across this stamp called 'The Chocolate Factory' from Lili of the Valley I couldn't pass it by. Those cheeky mice have found a way of lifting off the chocolate box lid, although I myself would prefer the saucepan of chocolate!!
I matted squares of dark brown and white core'dination cardstock onto white card. I then cut two doilies in half, two halves I coloured with yellow distress ink and two with purple distress ink, and arranged them on the card. (Chocolates are often displayed on doilies in chocolate shops.)
The stamped image was coloured using Promarkers. I framed this with purple core'dinations cardstock the centre of which had been cut out using a Spellbinders label four die. I then matted this combination onto dark purple core'dination cardstock and attached it to the card.
The paper flowers were printed from a My Craft's Studio CD ROM. After I had stuck the components together I sprayed them with gold glitter and added black stickles for the centres. I attached these to the card along with a yellow bow.
