Here's how I was inspired:
If you've been here before you know that one of my all time favorite caffeinated sets is the Brewtiful set from Miss Ink! From the beautiful Coffee Plant images to the cups, beans, and so many fantastic sentiments!
I love to color these florals! I use some of my favorite Copic colors... for the leaves I usually use YG01, YG03 and YG17... a little YG01 and YG03 in the centers of the flowers and the ever challenging but beautiful reds!... R24, R27, R29, and a tiny bit of R59 I believe are the ones I used here. And don't you just love that there's an XO in the set... of course the "O" is a cup!
I started with the background... I used some Squeezed Lemonade and Twisted Citron Distress Oxides and the Backgammon 2 stencil. Then I applied some Glitter Gel over the top of it which is super pretty especially in person... although that beautiful green kind of gets lost in these pics... it's a nice gradual shift from the bright green at the bottom to yellow at the top.
I popped the frame up onto the background once and then added my images using various thicknesses of popup tape. My most used product in my craft room is popup tape. I have all kinds but a few faves which I'll share with you in a future post!
And finally a sentiment perfect for checking in with a friend and a few of my favorite Trinity sequins!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed yourself and that you'll come back again... I am hoping to have two more coffee cards for you today and don't forget to link up before the end of today for your chance to win!
Come again soon!
