I was amazed to discover this super-sized KitKat chocolate bar so decided to create a journal page to celebrate!
I cut decoupage paper the same width and length as my KitKat bar and stuck them to the page using a UHU Stic. To balance the page I added two more pieces of decoupage paper which show the width of the bar. I masked these papers and stamped a serpentine background stamp from Art Impressions using Cocoa Memento Ink. This represents the chocolate coloured steam emanating from my teapot. The borders of the page are stained with Tea Dye Distress Ink which I applied directly to the page using the ink pad. Next I stamped the red wording using a Docrafts alphabet stamp set and Love Letter Memento Ink, then I outlined the letters using a black Uni Pin marker so they stood out more. For the teapot, I drew it freehand onto card then stuck the KitKat wrapper over the top and cut it out. I outlined the lid with a black Sharpie Permanent marker to make it stand out from the background, and then I stuck it to the page using double-sided foam tape. To finish I added red gel stickers to create the steam swirling around the page.
Here is the super-sized KitKat with my cup of Green tea – it appears that they only made them for a short while as now I can’t find them anymore. Such a shame as it was great fun eating a choccy bar the size of my head – have you seen any of them? As T Stands for Tuesday I’m sharing my KitKat with the T-Gang, as you can see there is plenty for everyone – Happy T Day!
I haven’t had KitKat for a while and thoroughly enjoyed a strip or two with my cup of tea – delicious! (Honestly, I only had a couple of strips, not the whole bar!)
