Coffee 2 Go




Morning everyone,
Before I get started I would like to thank Jane from Jane's lovely cards for the beautiful stamp on this card as I won it on her candy draw so thankyou very much Jane your a diamond I love this stamp.Please pop over to Janes Blog omg this is one very talented lady I love seeing everything she makes.
For the stamped image I coloured her using promarkers the pearls,flowers and card are from my stash and I am sorry but I really can't remember where these fab papers were from all I know is they were a freebie on a craft site so I am sorry about that.As you can see I have used distress ink around the image and I know what your thinking lol I went a bit overboard I have only just got myself a few of these inks and I am still practicing I certainly didn't do that very subtle which was the original plan.Also I think the flowers could do with some glitter sparkles what do you think should I add some glitter or leave them let me know.
Well as usual I do have some challenges I would like to enter this card into so here they are:

Magical crafts-Flower Power
Thankyou for taking a look and any comments you wish to leave will be very much appriciated.
Hugs

Love that image panel & the way you've perched her on it. The Distress Inks take a bit of getting used to but I wouldn't be without them now - they are always out. The inking around the image works so well here - just adding to that sense of Coffee richness. Love the papers & the way you've put those roses in the larger flowers, don't think they need glitter this time because like this they add to that coffee creamy richness rather than hinting at the sparkling of water. If that all makes sense.

Hi Lorraine, I love the dark inks around the edge I think it adds to the mystery of where she is going. As Paula says I don't think you need any sparkle on the flowers but it is your card and if you feel it needs it then go for it. You have to be happy with your creations or it will just bug you. Have a great weekend. Big hugs. :-) xx
