Here I am with another card for the fun Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Hop put on by Coffee Loving Cardmakers.
For this card I used a digital image. The image is called CoffeeBEE2. Unfortunately I did not label it with the company or person who designed it so if anyone knows please let me know.
First of all I sized the image and printed it on Neenah Desert Storm paper. I recently saw a nice card colored with pencils on kraft and it reminded me to get out my pencils since I really like the look. So this is colored with Prismacolor pencils. When I get done coloring I usually go back over the black lines since I like them vibrant.
Hellooo! Here is another card I made with a background I colored many moons ago and just didn’t know what I wanted to do with it. I think for me when I have a cool background I don’t want to cover it up or cut it up. So I struggle a bit. Now it is a card!
So after having this sit for so long I am really happy with the way it turned out.
I heat embossed the image I think using rose gold embossing powder. I colored with Copics. I made one little boo boo on the coloring but luckily it was on the edge and when I cut the panel down it got cut off. The sentiment was die cut using the same paper as the mat behind the panel.
The inspiration for this card was Merry Monday Challenge #263.
I did not enter this card but the cocoa in the jar, the wood grain, plaid and branches were the things I pulled from the inspiration photo seen above that was the theme for the challenge. It is a very cool cocoa bar scene.
The background is stamped with a woodgrain background stamp on kraft.
The branches are cut using my Silhouette Cameo. I inked them up with some Oxide Distress ink.
The cocoa jar was stamped and embossed with gold on vellum. I hand cut out the jar. I colored the back of the vellum with a brown Copic to look like cocoa powder. I hand wrote cocoa. I then cut another jar out of white paper to back the jar so the dots on the background didn’t show through. It doesn’t quite look how I thought it would but here it is.
The cup was heat embossed on patterned paper and hand cut. I colored the top part to look like there was cocoa in the cup.
Background stamp – Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain (S5208)
Cocoa jar – Avocado Arts Sweet Treat Sweetie.
Branches – Silhouette Cameo cut file
The cocoa cup – from a set by The Ton called Tea Party.
