Happy Friday, dear blog friends! Just wanted to pop in and share a card I made using Laura's sketch over at "2 Sketches 4 You." I always LOVE their sketches and all of the inspiring samples created by their DT!!! And after I post my card I really enjoy heading over there and checking out what the other participants made! Talk about a group of talented peeps!! Can't wait to see what everyone came up with this week ;)
Here's the sketch:
And here's my take on it:
When I saw this image (Endless Creations) at a stamp convention recently, I just HAD to have it!!! I also just recently purchased some Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Tsukineko) to try out with my Copic markers. (Up to this point, I'd always used Onyx Black Versafine and just let my images dry overnight.) I have to say I was really pleased with the way the Memento ink stamped, and I colored the image about 10 minutes after stamping it! YAY!
I created the patterned paper with the coffee beans all over it by repeatedly stamping a group of five coffee beans (Art Impressions).
Even though I'm not a coffee drinker, I LOVE to hang out at coffee shops and enjoy a hot tea (especially on cold or rainy days)! Ahhhh...hot tea and a good book...pure bliss! I'm thinking I need to make another version of this card with a "to-go tea drink!"
Hope you have something fun planned for the weekend! My cousin is visiting us from Pittsburgh! It will be her first time in Colorado, so we're looking forward to taking her hiking and sightseeing!
