Coffee Loving Cardmakers is having their summer blog hop so true coffee lovers are inspired to share their passion. How could I resist posting my latest coffee card – What’s Brewing?
I used Just For Fun Rubber Stamps’ Cafe' image, stamping it with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on top of the same designer paper I used for a background layer. Then I added subtle color with Copic markers, using more of a flicked brush affect.
The sentiment, What's Brewing, and the coffee bean border from the Coffee Unmounted Sheet, both from Just For Fun, were both stamped on a second designer paper and all was layered on brown.
I spritzed a little Vintage Photo Distress Ink with water on my craft sheet and used a lid to stamp some coffee rings on top of the whole card. Then I also added some splatters. Did you know there is a new Distress Ink called Ground Espresso? I know I need that!
Since I am off for the summer, I am posting from Omaha, NE where I am visiting my mother, and other family members. It has been extremely hot here but mom and I still have our coffee together each morning and afternoon and are taking lots of time to catch up.
What’s brewing with you?
