This week over at the Corrosive challenge blog the theme is Coffee and what could be nicer than a good old early morning cup of strong black coffee to wake you up............I tell you I needed 3 mugs this morning to get me going at 7.30am after being up till 2.30am colouring my Tildas and while watching the new BBC1 series "criminal Justice" on the BBC iplayer its blooming brilliant, I have only seen parts 1 & 2, so I have 3 more to catch up on.
Anyway back to craft; also at Stamp something challengethe challenge this week is Brown and another colour I have used cream.
And at Rosie Dees challenge the theme is Coffee & Cream.
I made this using a chipboard wall hanger kit from my shop.
I stamped the cup & saucer with SU close to coco coloured ink and then used a wet brush and SU creamy caramel ink to shade the cup I then distressed the edge with a Heidi Swapp distressing tool before stitching it to a mat and then using Tim Holtz distress ink on the edge.
I then randomly stamped the large chocolate brown coloured backing shape with with a Dawn Houser funky mug stamp, Made a ticket shape from Kraft card and stamped it with the latte sentiment added some flowers and one of those lovely brads I opened yesterday , punched a couple of holes and set 2 extra large eyelets with the big bite tool, then threaded some American craft ribbon to hang it up and there you have it a wall hanger fit for any coffee love ....just like me !!
