the Chocolate Bandit

a yummy challenge for Mittwochstempler (WS)  this week … and one of my favorite food groups too … CHOCOLATE

Hand-Over-The-ChocolateCLOS“… and no one gets hurt”

SilverShieldIronRest+stampsmy arch began with a photograph of  an old funky looking metal iron rest that I picked up with intentions of altering some day

Chocolate-Bandit

I added the velvety flocked leaves as a finishing touch along with the recipe page from a 1953 Refrigerator Desserts booklet as a backdrop

  12. It’s always wonderful when you choose a background that goes so well with the images you choose. This iron holder is to die for, and you have altered it so well. I don’t think I’ve seen an arch I like better than this one. I really love the rubber stamp you used to frame the little girl. She has so much detail with all the added goodies, she’s sure to be a favorite of everyone.
