Chocolate ... Therapy

I was organizing some of my smaller stamps the other day, and I ran across this gem from a bazillion years ago:

It hadn't seen ink in sooo long, I had trouble peeling it off the acetate backing. But I persevered and made this:

following an old sketch from Unscripted Sketches:

I actually colored him (should be obvious *ahem*) in the traditional navy blazer and khaki slacks. I used some masculine-type papers and mixed up the patterns so they'd mostly work together.

For my last act, I added Glossy Accents to his glasses:

If he didn't need to be colored, I might use him more. Sigh. For now I've put him in the "tiny stamp set" bin, to be rediscovered another day.

Thanks for stopping by!

Products used: SU Night of Navy card stock, SU Garden Green card stock, and the following:


  1. I loved these minis - I have a few that died from overuse, lol. I think you did a great job colouring him (or photographing so we can't see what you seem to see, lol!)

  2. This is a fun card. I like the touch of glaze to his glasses. I used to have this stamp but a friend talked me out of it. Sometimes I miss him.

  3. That's a wonderful card. You did an excellent job of coloring the little guy. I used to have this stamp, I think, but never used it so it's probably history now.


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
