Anyway, now that I am up to speed (ish!), here's the inspiration for this challenge-
I am a great lover of coffee. So much, in fact, that I think Juan Valdez should be cannonized. You remember him, the guy from the coffee can....oh, never mind. I'm rattling around in the windmills of my mind again...
ANYway! I made a card!
It looks like this--
Clearly, I went with the theme of the card, rather than the colors. I actually panicked about that for a split second, before I saw others had done the same thing.
SO, I stamped my coffee cups, and just did little swipes of color with sponge daubers, then did the red swirl and steam parts with markers. Then, I pulled out a trick I saw a million years ago, where you actually use real coffee to make "mug marks" in strategic places. I drink my coffee with milk, so it ended up more on the subtle side, but the idea is definitely there.
The banner came together with those bits of washi, and my hearts and stars kind of remind me of cookies. (cookies, mmm...) What better to go with coffee? A bit of foam tape, some twine, some pearls, and there you go.
I am very glad I placed the banner OVER one of the coffee rings, so that it really looks purposely done, and not like I just jammed some ruined card into an envelope and rushed it off. Some people are so touchy about stuff looking good...
Well, that's the card. Going back over this post, it seems I clearly have had too much coffee this morning. Either that, or I am a bit wiki in the waki woo....who can say? I need more coffee...
Thanks for stopping by!
