...specifically the round, pastel colored balls that are mint flavored. Certain restaurants that we go to have them in a little dish with a small silver scoop and when you are leaving you scoop yourself some. They usually are mint green, pink, white and sometimes, a pale blue. And they are delicious. And when my husband, daughter, her boyfriend and I went out for dinner a few weeks ago I saw those little mints and thought what a wonderful pairing of colors. So soft, delicate and "sweet" looking. So, I tried to recreate that dish of sugar in a card....soft, sweet and definitely "sugar-y" looking. I used Hero Arts Tall Flower Stamp here and Basic Grey Indie Bloom paper here . And here is what I came up with:
I colored this image with copics and also colored in the "background" around the flower with copics too. I stickled with Diamond, distressed another doily from Maureen Morton here, colored the "candies" with copics and then stickled those also. Tied a bow and that's that! Thank you for stopping by again. I hope you enjoyed your visit!
