I am absolutely in love with the new Spring Cottage cartridge! I love this new strawberry cut and basket! I decided to try something new and dip them all in chocolate....... : ) Not real chocolate of course but a concoction that looks a whole lot like chocolate!
My chocolate dipped strawberries certainly are not perfect.....and with all art, sometimes a learning process! I look at my lil' strawberries and think I probably could have dipped them a little higher.....but what's done is done.
Even with the chocolate being a bit meager I still think the strawberries look pretty sweet!
Here is a little step by step on how I made this summery fruit.....When you cut them from the cartridge, this is how they look. You need to glue the ends together. I took a fine floss and run it through the holes at the top and pulled it shut. To make the chocolate, you will need glossy accents....
Dark chocolate paint and mix. I used about 3/4 glossy accents and 1/4 paint. Then dip and let them drip dry! : ) And when you make yours......be sure to be a bit more generous with the "chocolate" then I was! ; )
Today is my last day of school......spring break begins and I have an entire week off. I am so excited to have a bit of free time and hopefully find myself elbow deep in paper and glitter!
As always, thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
