Coffee of the Day - Moon Pie
Well today marks my last official day as a guest over at Inky Antics. I have another few cards that will appear on the blog, but this is my last big hoorah. it has been so much fun, and I can't thank Jackie enough for being so kind as to have me along for this grand & glorious ride! everyone has been so nice! :)
It just seems fitting that my last official post also be a coffee card. I've been wanting to try out the chalkboard technique for the longest time and Nancy's wonderful set, 'Coffee Time,' seemed the ideal opportunity to finally be brave and go for it.
I found some free chalkboard digital paper online and embossed the coffee label image in white onto it. I then used a Spellbinders die to cut it out. while the image was still in the die, but had already been cut, I took my white gel pen and drew around the inner portion of the die. this created the solid line you see. papers come from the Basic Grey Paper Cottage collection.
the coffee pot top was covered in crystal effects. crochet border die is from MFT, and doily was sprayed with glimmer mist. if you look closely in the upper left hand corner behind that fabulous flower, you will see a piece of clear packaging that was cut with a SU! die. it is so subtle, but it really gives a cool hint irl. I added a matching line with the white gel pen across the red horizontal strip. again, it's subtle, but it makes a big difference. you'll just have to trust me on that one! ;) the little bit of linen thread wrapped around adds more texture without taking away from the focus of the card. some buttons and a rhinestone flourish add the finishing touches!
This week's stamp set giveaway is back over on the Inky Antics blog. thank you for stopping by and leaving such kind comments both here and over on their blog. you make me smile. :)
