Today it is my husbands' birthday and every year among his gifts there is always at least one box of Licorice Allsorts as everyone in the family knows they are his favourite sweets, so when I spotted this stamp from Darkroom Door I knew that I had to get it to make his
card with. I started by stamping the sweets image onto a piece of white card with Memento tuxedo black, and then coloured it with Coloursoft pencils, trying to match the colours to the real thing. I then cut it out and mounted it onto black card leaving a small border. I stamped the base card with a swirl from a Chocolate Baroque stamp set, Nature Swirls, with Brilliance Lightning Black ink and wrapped a piece of orange ribbon across it before mounting the main image on foam pads.I stamped the sentiment that came with the sweet stamp and cut it out with a nestabillities label die.I'm not sure which one, I think it may be 16. I cut one the next size up in black to make a mount and added it to the card and finished it with tree tiny black gems on the ribbon.I kind of wish I hadn't stamped the swirls in the background, but it had looked a bit stark without them. Hubby liked it anyway which was the reason for making it.I would like to link this to the following challenges.Anything Goes Challenge Blog.-A Real Sweetie.
