H2H Challenge: Time For S'more Sketches

This week I was more on the ball with the H2H Challenge...it's only Tuesday! They have provided a fun sketch for us to use:

Now I actually had a card in mind yesterday, but wanted to wait until today to share it. Why? Do you know what today is?

Then let me enlighten you with a quote from the great Ham Porter of The Sandlot:

"Alrite now pay attention. First you take the graham, you stick the chocolate on the graham. Then you roast the 'mallow. When the 'mallows flaming...you stick in on the chocolate. Then cover with the other end. Then you scarf. Kind of messy, but good!"

Yes, it is National S'mores Day!Smiley from millan.net

Did you even know that existed?

Me either, until a couple of days ago. But I had wanted to try something in honor of the gooey treat and after I flipped it, this sketch was just right.

Stamps: CTMH Beary Best, Tiny Typewriter Alphabet
Inks: CTMH Brown Bag, Chocolate (of course!), VersaMark, Memento Tuxedo Black
Papers: CTMH Brown Bag, Chocolate (mmmm!), White Daisy

Doesn't it just look good enough to eat?

Oops, got to be careful not to wrinkle the cardstock.

Take a closer look at that chocolate piece:

I got this effect by clear embossing the entire piece then scoring it to look like a chocolate bar.

Then I got out the Liquid Applique. First, I made the 'mallow. And then sponged on some Brown Bag ink.

Then I sponged the Liquid Applique on the edges of the White Daisy cardstock. After heating it, I sponged a little Brown Bag ink, followed by some Chocolate ink just on the edges.

Mmmmm! Looks nice and toasty doesn't it? Okay, now I'm totally hungry for s'mores. Guess what we're having for dessert tonight! Smiley from millan.net

Don't forget to create something of your own and share it over at the H2H blog!
