For my first project I wanted to make my background look like coffee stains!
I created this effect by water-coloring with distress inks. I started with watercolor paper and colored on my distress inks ,I used both antique linen and frayed burlap with a water brush, creating sort of messy circles and sort of splattered some ink along the way. I stamped the little bean from the Love You Latte set along the edge. I used the new Stitched Borders die as well along the edge. I colored my little bear from the Party Animal set with Copic markers on separate piece of white card stock and fussy cut him out. I did the same with the little mug he's holding. I stamped my Love you latte sentiment to finish this card off:)
For my second project, I made a coffee scrub that I thought would make a cute little gift for any coffee lover. Its simply coconut oil and coffee grounds and smells amazing! But its not a gift without a cute little tag! I created the tag with the I Love You a Latte stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I started by cutting the tag out with my Cricut. I stamped my cute coffee images and colored them in with Copic markers, added my sentiment and some coffee steam and that's it for my tag. Easy and cute!:)
Thank you so much for hopping along today!
