Hot Cocoa Challenge

The challenge this week on Heart 2 Heart challenges is to create a project with hot cocoa images or using the very trendy Cocoa color. I do love Close To My Heart's Cocoa ink and cardstock. It is a great base color for so many projects.

Lately I've been seeing several creations imitating the look of chalkboard. I thought I would give this technique a try with our cocoa cardstock rather than black. It worked pretty well, check it out!



Along with the Cocoa I pulled in some older neutral papers, Cranberry pleated ribbon and some darling Juniper mittens cut on the Cricut Artiste cartridge. Be sure to see the other Cocoa creations on the H2H blog!
