I saw that the CASology challenge is COFFEE!!! I absolutely could not turn down this challenge!
I did a wash with my distress inks... I only have four distress inks right now, so my colors were limited. Once I got the wash done, I decided it needed some coffee rings but I didn't have a coffee ring stamp the size I wanted, so naturally I went into the kitchen and grabbed my favorite Starbucks coffee mug! I dabbed my distress ink on my acrylic block, sprayed a bit of water and rubbed my coffee mug around in the ink to get it saturated. Plopped it down on my panel and let it set for just a bit to make sure I got a good color. Then I did it again. Absolutely love the way it turned out!!
I added my sentiment also using the distress ink but I heat embossed it with clear ep. Bring on the splatter... I grabbed the dark roast silk and splattered away. Unfortunately, in my excitement I didn't protect my sentiment so there it is... but I still love it!
I watercolored the coffee cup using the same three distress inks plus Stampin' Up!'s Mossy Meadow ink. I fussy cut it out and popped it up using stampin' dimensionals.
Here are the products I used for this card:
Stamps: Pumpkin Spice (Unity)
Inks: Basic Black craft (retired SU!); Broken China, Rusty Hinge & Gathered Twigs distress inks (SSS)
Adhesives: Stampin' Dimensionals(SU!)
Tools: heat tool
Miscellaneous: Dark Roast silks, Clear and Black embossing powder (retired SU!)
Go check out the challenge over at CASology and play along... there's still time!

See ya next time.
