Love You a Latte
This week's challenge from Our Creative Corner is to use food or drink in our projects. I had a hard time figuring out what to do - I wasn't even sure I had that many food or drink stamps! But then I saw this stamp from the SU set Pun Fun - I'd never even mounted it. Once I chose the image, the card just took off from there.
I chose my colors based on this DP, which is Honey Pie by Cosmo Cricket. I first stamped the image in Memento tuxedo black, intending to color with Copics, but in the end I paper pieced it for an exact match. I did use an E41 Copic marker to shade around the cup and highlight the steam. The cardstock is PTI white and Bazzill Capers. In hunting through my stash, I discovered that these Making Memories (Lemonade collection) buttons and flowers are a great match for this paper collection. I just filled in a couple of the colors with Primas for a little more variety. I added linen thread to the buttons before I mounted them all together. The main image was cut with Nestabilities, and for the border I used an EK Success punch. To make it all tie together I pierced the edges of the scallop circle.
Wouldn't this be a great card to tell a special friend how much you love them? Of course my friends who know me really well would have to laugh because they know I don't even drink coffee. LOL! Be sure you check out the fabulous work of the rest of the team at the OCC, and come and play along! Thanks also to Jenny for such a fun month of challenges. See you in 2010!
