* Colour Crazy Challenge: Coffee Love


Today sees the start of a new colouring challenge at the Colour Crazy Challenge Blog. The challenge is always Anything Goes, but of course your card must feature some colouring: use any medium you wish. This week Little Blue Button Stamps is the sponsor.

I was lucky to receive a digi stamp to work with and I chose Coffee Love. Here is my card:

I coloured the digi with Copic markers and added some white Posca pen highlights. I fussy cut her leaving a thin white border so that she would stand out from the background. The background was made with Distress Oxides. I blended Vintage Photo, Antique Linen, Scattered Straw, Fossilised Amber and finally Spiced Pumpkin onto smooth card. Once I was happy with the blend I sprinkled some water droplets to beach out some of the colour. I then stencilled over parts of the background to give a little more texture.

I matted my background onto kraft card and then orange card, inking all edges with Vintage Photo. I added a strip of the background card as a banner along the bottom and adhered some hessian trim. The Coffee Girl is popped on foam pads for dimension and the sentiment, from Vera Lane Studio, was printed, die cut and attached to a tag along with the coffee cup from the Coffee Love digi set. Finally I added three large, flat backed, coffee coloured pearls.

Many thanks to Little Blue Button Stamps for sponsoring this challenge.
