I wanted to play along with the Coffee Lovers Bloghop again before it closes so came up with a summery-colored coffee card. I was inspired by the colors and the hexagon shape at the Pinsights Challenge.
On the centre panel, I blended distress inks onto a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock before die-cutting it with a stitched die. I did have to do some partial die-cutting to get the panel deep enough but that was easy enough to do. Once that was done, I took some black embossing paste and a hexagon stencil and stenciled over the panel. I love the contrast of the bright colors with the black shapes and sentiment. The cup was colored with Copics and die-cut and the sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.
I used a black stitched frame and then a Limelight strip to add even more bright color!
Thanks for visiting! The FMS DT have some gorgeous inspiration so head on over and check them out.
