I replaced the flowers with this cute coffee cup from Perfect Blend and used the XX's on the sketch to place our new background stamp, Off The Grid. The coffee cup is decorated with a new accessory Regals Candy Dots. (These dots are available in each of our color families; Regals refers to the color group I used here.)
|Colors: Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Crushed Curry, Very Vanilla|
Some project notes:
The panel on the right (behind the coffee cup) was weathered using a super simple technique:
- Cut the card stock to size, crumple tightly in your hands then flatten somewhat.
- Rub it with VersaMark or a sponge containing light brown ink. This will highlight the lines and crinkles you just created.
- Rub with a Bone Folder to flatten further and apply to your project.
For the multi-colored stamp (grid):
Notice that the stamp is positioned "rubber up" and I'm tapping the ink pad down onto it. It easier to control the amount of ink you put on your stamp this way; it only takes a light touch. Pressing hard will often gunk up your stamp and the wood or clear block holding it.
Thanks for stopping by!
