Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Take Two


I'm back again at the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  I was rummaging through my stash of stamped images looking for inspiration for another card when I saw this stamped piece.  They're holding coffee cups.  Too good an opportunity to miss.


It's a really old stamp by Stamps Happen (now defunct?) but I love it.  I coloured it with Tombow pens and a water brush, then mounted it onto chocolatey brown card which has a lovely pearlescent sheen to it, which doesn't show up here, unfortunately.  Added some designer paper mounted on to the card base, and stamped the sentiment from STAMPlorations Vignette: Eat Drink Be Merry.  I've curled the lower edge of the stamped panel up, which you can just about make out in the photo.

I'm also entering it into Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Special Lady/Girly.


***************

I'm over at STAMPlorations tonight, this time inspired by Pablo Picasso.  Here's a sneak peek.
