Chevron Coffee

Hi, I'm joining in with the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop today, as well as the ColourQ challenge and The Paper Players sketch challenge.

When I first saw Claire's sketch, I had zero ideas, but then it slowly came together into this card - not sure that it 100% meets the sketch, but I think you can see the sketch :)


I started with a Slate card base and down the left hand side I stamped the script image and a leaf image from French Foliage - one of my favorite SU sets.  I then die cut a frame from Smoke cardstock and again stamped the script image down the left hand side.

The chevron and the band on the coffee cup are white panels sponged with distress ink then spritzed with water.  After die-cutting the coffee cup, I sponged the sides to give the impression of roundness.  A stacked die-cut sentiment and my card was finished.



Thanks for visiting.

Wow!! This is AMAZING!! I love your card with the chevron and I can definitely see the PP sketch. Such a great take on the sketch and I love the background stamping on the base panel - it really adds such a subtle detail.
