It's ok to cry over spilled coffee

Monday, May 4, 2015

Hi there! Today I thought I'd participate in a challenge I hadn't before: Retro Sketches.

After a long day and hours spent on a card that ended up in the trash can, I went to my nephew's t-ball game. After getting love from my nieces, I came home, took a shower, and told myself to relax and take my time. The above card is the result and it came together quickly and easily, I started off by choosing a couple stamp sets and the colors I wanted to use. I cut all my pieces, chose where I wanted the coffee cup to go, and masked it off. I stamped the circles and then flicked ink spritzed with water onto the paper with a paint brush. When it was dry I peeled off the mask and stamped the cup. To finish I adhered everything to my card front. Thank you for coming by!

My Supplies:
Stamps: PTI Drips and Dribbles, PTI Candy Cane Christmas
Dies: MFT Die-namics Fishtail Flag Stax
Ink: PTI Plum Pudding, PTI Classic Kraft, PTI Fine Linen
Paper: PTI White Stamper's Select, PTI Plum Pudding, PTI Sheer Basics Vellum
