Hello stamping friends! I had a need to make an encouragement card for a man, but I wanted to combine this with the coffee blog hop and a new to me Distress Oxide technique. This is what I came up with.
The background was made with the Swipe Your Credit Card technique. I used Faded Jeans, Broken China and Fired Brick Distress Oxides because I originally wanted a sortof patriotic look. However, Distress Oxides do have a mind of their own and the Fired Brick turned orange. No problem! It still looks summery like madras plaid, to me. I also used perfect pearls in my water, so there is the slightest shimmer in the stripes.
I used snippets of patterned paper and the orange cardstock from my scrap box. The card was a bit plain, so I colored up some coffee beans and used them to embellish.
Supplies: Lil Inker Designs Coffee Cozies stamp set, Just for Fun Rubber stamps Coffee Unmounted stamp set, Versafine and Memento black inks, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, My Mind's Eye Happy Camper 6x6 paper pad, Distress Oxide inks Faded Jeans, Broken China and Fired Brick, Gina Marie X Stitched Rectangle dies
