Hershey




The theme for today's challenge from Paper Makeup Stamps' Digi Makeover Challenge is monochromatic and I thought Hershey would be the perfect choice.  (Although he isn't in the digi section yet, I'm sure he will be soon.)




He's colored with Copic markers and cut out with Spellbinders die.  Hershey is definitely a messy eater.  All the chocolate that's on his face, hands, and what he dropped on the floor is covered with Glossy Accents since melted chocolate has that shiny look to it.  I've added a bit of recycling by using a Hershey candy bar wrapper as part of the design.  The mats are cut with Grand Large Labels from Spellbinders and Lifestyle Crafts' Nesting Scallop Squares.  The papers are from WeR Memory Keepers (Cotton Candy) and Bo Bunny (Coffee Stripe).  On the inside is my computer generated sentiment and it says: "Enjoy Life,  Eat Dessert First" in chocolate, of course.

Now it's your turn to show us your monochromatic project.  Just remember, you have to use a digi and follow this week's theme.  Be sure to see what the rest of the Digi Makeup Artists have created for you and give a warm welcome to our first guest designer of the summer - Sarah L.

Copics used: E74, E77, E79   E13, E15, E17    E11, E97    N1, N2, N5   E70, B000, B01

:) Chocolate monster, I love it! Sad to say that I look a bit like this after working with chocolate. No matter what I do it always finds away to get all over me. I also really like how you incorporated the Hershey's wrapper in you card!

What a fun choice for a monochromatic card, Anne! Love that you put an actual Hershey wrapper on your card with him. What a great coloring job you did too. :)
