* Vera Lane Studio: Coffee Girl ATC

I am still having trouble with Blogger. 
I'm sorry, but I cannot comment on blogs that only allow Google account users to leave comments. For some reason, if you have comment moderation then I can comment. I have no idea why and any suggestions are most welcome!

For my second post today I'd like to share a coffee themed ATC that I made for the Vera Lane Studio ATC swap. The ATC theme this month is Coffee or Tea and you can play along in our Facebook group. 

 I used Coffee Girl and the coffee shop from Tall Town as my images. I coloured them with Copic markers, added some Glossy Accents to the shop windows and some Stickles Diamond glitter to the girl's eyelids. 
The background of the ATC is made with blended Distress Oxides (Vintage Photo, Spiced Pumpkin and Mustard Seed). I added some stamping in Versamark ink along the edges and heat embossed in bronze.  
Once the images were fussy cut, the coffee shop was glued directly onto the background and the girl was popped on foam pads. The sentiment was inked and added at an angle.

I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane.
