ColourQ Coffee


It's time for another ColourQ challenge - check out this week's pretty combo...

I just added the fun Perfect Blend stamp set to my collection and I thought this combo would be a great chance to get it inky...

Why is it that a relatively simply idea in my head turns more and more complicated when I make it lol?! The top coffee cup was embossed on So Saffron & Whisper White card as well as some Sweater Weather dsp with Early Espresso EP, then cut out and paper pieced (I also stamped the greeting on the So Saffron piece). The cup behind was done in the same way but instead of embossing, I just stamped it with Early Espresso ink. The dsp behind is more Sweater Weather, cut into a banner shape and stamped with the swirl from Everything Eleanor using Early Espresso ink. The piece behind is some Cajun Craze core'dinations card, embossed with the Mosaic embossing folder and sanded lightly. I added some lace tape, Early Espresso ribbon, So Saffron candy dots and some punched chevrons to finish.

The sketch is from this week's Friday Mashup (I thought I'd play along to let them know I haven't forgotten about them lol!)...

Make sure you check out the fab creations from the rest of the Royal Court this week!

Thanks for stopping by...
