Shrimp Soup

Ok, can you tell that I'm trying really hard to make up for the fact I didn't post everyday this week? LOL this is card 4 for the day1

The colors again are Chocolate Chip, Cool Caribbean, Whisper White, and Blush Blossom. The card base was stamped with the "Linen" BG stamp. Then I took the "On the Spot" Bg and inked it up in Cool Caribbean. I went back after it was inked and added the Chocolate Chip with a Stampin' Write marker. I tied a piece of chocolate grosgrain around this and mounted it to the card base.

The main image was stamped on Whisper White. I inked the edges of the coffee cup from "Like it a Latte" in Chocolate Chip with a marker and stamped it on the cardstock. Next I masked it off and stamped the little shrimp "inside" the cup in Black Stazon. They were both colored in with ink refills and a watercolor brush.

Next I took the Stazon and added the steam above the cup, so that you can tell he's in "hot water" hehe. Last but not least I took my black Stampin' Write marker and doodled a frame around the edge.

Now to find a sentiment that fits...any suggestions??
