Chocolate & Mint Challenge

This week for the Sugar and Spice Crafty Challenge its chocolate and mint! To be honest, I hardly ever....and I mean EVER use brown when I scrapbook....or in my wardrobe for that matter. I prefer black. However, there is something about chocolate and mint that just goes together. I created two cards for this challenge. I figure if I am going to use a color that challenges me, might as well go all the way and create my most challenging form of paper crafting-CARDS! I have such a hard time making cards. I am going to be sending out a thank you package and a RAK (hopefully this week!) and these will be perfect to send along with the packages. 

This is the first card I made. 
I stamped the background with Memento cocoa brown ink.

I pulled out my copics and colored in the stamped camera image. I used the last of my PaperTrey Ink Ribbon in mint. 

The second card I made is using Dear Lizzy paper and some Mr. Huey Mint Julep spray.

I used the extra Nina White card stock left over from stamping the camera on my first card. I ran the thick card stock through my cuddle bug using the MFT lower case High-Rise die. 
I used a water color pen with the Mr. Huey and colored the letters. I finished the card up with some hemp cord from My Mind's Eye.

Hope you enjoyed. Please check out Sugar and Spice Crafty Challenge and post your project!

Have a great week.
