I was inspired by the colors of the IC piece. I also liked the check fabric with the floral, so I combined gingham ribbon with a fruit pattern. And I really wanted to incorporate the lace butterfly amd the way it separated the the top half of the shirt from the bottom, so I used this cutwork paper I had----it is a 12x12 piece with flowers and dots die-cut in rows. I cut around the cutwork to make lace.
The chocolate on the cherries is first the bravo burgundy marker (looked more like chocolate than than choc chip!!), then after stamping I went over it with a versamarker and embossed with chocolate brownie EP. It really does smell wonderful in the jar and when it is heated, but the smell wears off as it cools---bummer.
The top half of the cherry is a rose red marker and then I covered it with the clear gel pen. I used self-adhesive rhinestones for the highlights on the stamped cherries.
