MC Dec/11 - 2 Cups - Now Tell me
I was in a mood to make a card with coffee cups, so got out my Flourishes stamp set "Coffee with Friends" set #29. I stamped the coffee cup outline on some cardstock and created an image to cut on my electronic cutter, cut 2 of them out and then stamped them with Versafine Black Onyx. Colored them with Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils and blended with a water brush. When dry, re-stamped the cup and clear embossed.
Side folded a baby blue cardstock to create a 5"w x 7"h card. Stamped the background lace (Harmonie #56004) with the black and clear embossed.
Die cut the Spellbinders Beaded Circle from white cardstock, Stamped my quote (Quietfire Design) with the black, stamping twice to omit the middle line of the quote... ("the teapot is behind you") which I thought inappropriate for this card. ROFL. Clear embossed the stamping then sponged some Distress Faded Jeans all over. Adhered to card. Punched out a bunch of small black circles which I adhered to each beaded element on the die cut, then adhered silver half pearls in each center.
Adhered my cups and added Liquid Pearls "White Opal" dots for steam.
