Super quick post today to remind you that you have today and tomorrow to play along with the Caffeine Fueled Paper Play Challenge over at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog! Miss Ink is the sponsor and you could win the fabulous Java Joe's stamp set! I have a little inspiration for you today!
The Java Joe's set is SO fun! It's a little cafe along with quite a few related images and some great sentiments! I decided to make a quick and flat (aka easily mailable) card!
I stamped the building and pot images offset on my panel using Copic friendly ink. Then I masked off the potted plant and building and added a few of the included bricks AND used the Jitters stencil to add a little "sky" to the scene. (I imagine the sky might look like this in the atmosphere around a coffee shop.. if you look closely!) I colored the whole thing in with light colors (channeled my inner Amy for this one and really had to work hard to not make everything too bright because it's not the look I was going for)! Finally I added some dots at the bottom and colored in a bit to ground my images. Easy peasy!
And I decided on this fun sentiment and that it would span the entire card (because I ripped my paper a bit around that area...lol! Sometimes the card chooses the design...lol! I just added a few beautiful Buttercup sequins from Kat Scrappiness and I was done!
I love that I can just drop this one in my mailbox and don't have to trek to the post office to mail it!
