I love the aroma of coffee and just the thought of it makes me happy! I confess, I think about coffee a lot. So when I saw the sentiments in the new Coffee Talk set I knew which sentiment I had to use first.
Wouldn't it be nice if coffee thought about us as much as we think about it?
I started by ink smooshing a background on Canson mixed media paper with mowed lawn and peacock feathers distress oxide inks. I dried in between layers of ink and kept going until I reached the desired depth of color and cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die. Next, I used four of the images from Grunge Elements 2 to create the background. I chose a combination of Distress Ink (antique linen, vintage photo) and SU! inks (close to cocoa, creamy caramel) to get the coffee stain look I desired. I stamped the sentiment from Coffee Talk with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink. I matted the panel on black and then onto a teal card base.
Then, I stamped the coffee cup image from Fill Me Up with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink onto Canson mixed media paper and colored with Altenew watercolor brush markers. I stamped the cup cozy on white paper with peacock feathers distress oxide ink and cut both images with the coordinating dies. I attached the cup cozy to the cup and popped the coffee cup up with foam tape on the front.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic day,Karen
