MAWTT Challenge 94 - Chocolate

Hi Everyone

Today our fabulous Laurie is hosting the challenge at MAWTT and she has chosen the theme of Chocolate so I couldn't resist making a VINTAGE CHOCOLATE BAR. Well I have the photos to prove it isn't that old really and the choc is still good to be eaten - of course.

 The above photo became this...........

......... and this became ........... (scroll down to see)

We were given images from Stitchy Bear Stamps and I chose this ornate egg to work with. I coloured it up in Photoshop Elements then used it to make my own backing paper (the spotty design I layered it on is from Far Far Away). I edged it with DI and misted it with 2 different glimmer mists to get a more distressed look. I made my own round sentiment (which was a freebie last week) and printed off a larger coloured egg to embellish the top.

So here's my real chocolate contribution to the challenge this week. Great one Laurie, thanks for the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your week.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

Sweet! (pun intended) That image looks great for your background paper, and I'm sure someone will appreciate this challenge with Easter coming up. By the way, we've booked one week so far for next month, in Barham, near Canterbury. Haven't been to that area before.

It is lovely Brenda, but please explain the foil, I may be a trifle slow today; did you design on top of the wrapper?
