Mmmmmmmm. Chocolate!

This week's challenge at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is  Chocolate, in honor of Chocolate Day, which was July 7th. My Outlawz Coloring Challenge teammates, Carla, Penny, Karen, Vannessa, and I challenge you to use create a project for this challenge. You can use any coloring medium you like, just as long as you color! 

Our July sponsor at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is Sweet Pea Stamps, who is offering our lucky winner three digis of his/her choice from the Sweet Pea Digi Stamp Store.  Play along with us for your chance to win!

Here's my somewhat late card with Sweet Pea/Janna Prosvirina's Hot Chocolate Fairy.

It's summer, so hot chocolate didn't work for me, so I tried to make the hot chocolate look more like a chocolate ice cream soda. 

The Hot Chocolate Fairy was slightly reduced in PhotoElements, printed out with my laser printer onto Neenah cardstock, colored with Copic markers, then die-cut with one of the dies from the Card Creator 5x7 Nestabilities die set (Spellbinders). 

Clear Stardust Glitter pen (Sakura) to her necklace, then added several layers of Clear Gelly Glaze pen (Sakura) over the necklace, to the soda glass and to the chocolate heart candies. Chocolate Spica Glitter pen (Copic) was added to the ice cream to try to make it look frosty. 

Here's a close-up of the glass.

The patterned papers are ancient and are by Sharon Ann (Deja Views). I chose them because they matched the colors I had used for the fairy and because I love brown with shades of blue. One sheet of the blue patterned paper was lightly stenciled with a Ledger stencil (Stampers Anonymous) and Cornflower Blue Archival ink (Ranger), which was also used to edge the blue pieces of patterned paper. Rich Cocoa Memento ink (Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts) was also used to edge the papers.

Thanks for visiting today! 

I shall enter this card into the following challenges:
