I created my card using the cute Preston coffee owl stamp from Rubbernecker Stamps. I won 3 coffee owl stamps and this guy hasn’t been used. Time to get that going on.
The idea just popped in my head to having him balancing on a coffee cup. Who knows where these things come from… ha. Maybe a little quirky.
For the background I stamped Preston and then I used Distress Oxide ink over a stencil. I wanted to pop up Preston but I needed to stamp him on the background to get his legs, the coffee steam and feathers sticking up on his head. I wasn’t going to hand cut those out.
I stamped Preston on another piece of paper colored him with Copics. I then cut him out by hand and glued him over the stamped image on the background using foam tape.
The coffee cup is die cut and then a die was used to cut out the design on the cup. The cup itself is teal but kind of looks green in the photo. I colored in the design using a Copic pen. The cup was already glued down when I decided to stencil the background so I made a mask to cover the cup while inking over the stencil.
The sentiment is stamped.
