A third post for today!!!! I'm on a roll. :) I noticed that the Design Memory Craft blog has a challenge to make a project about your favorite beverage. Well.....mine happens to be coffee. Oh, I do LOVE coffee!! Personally, I brew mine super-strong and then add milk, half 'n' half, and hazelnut syrup. Oh, YUM!!! Can you say dessert in a cup? (swoon...) I also happened to have some coffee stamps from Stamplorations I won during Amy's Coffee Lovers Hop. (THANKS, Stamplorations!!!) So I was all set. :)
I did another emboss resist background on some DCWV designer paper, using Versamark and clear powder and zapping with my gun. Then the fun began......
I got out my box of Gelatos and started going over my embossed background piece with a mix of colors that I liked: chocolate, gold champagne, tangerine, cotton candy, and white. I colored and blended with some combination of kleenex, my fingers, and a baby wipe until I had the effect I wanted: rich and warm and dreamy.
I stamped a sentiment from the set with Memento - Tuxedo Black and heat embossed it with clear powder. I matted the sentiment panel on some pastel blue cardstock identical to the card base. I layered a flower die cut from my Sizzix - Build a Lilac set. I love this die set because I can use up my small scraps by cutting out little flowers. :) I keep them in little zip-lock bags roughly sorted as to color.
That's all from me for today. Thanks so much for your visit and all your awesome comments!!!! I hope you will join me next Monday for my combined First Blogoversary & Janis' Birthday Double Giveaway!!!!
