Hello, time for more coffee! What I intended to make today and what I ended up with are two different things – again.
I bought a really cool coffee t-shirt in San Diego this past April and wanted to “case” it.
I even added the words to my coffee cup, but didn’t like how it looked so scratched that idea. The cup I used was from this free digital coffee set, but I cut off the steam at the top, the sleeve along the sides and didn’t print the emblem.
For the four layers of coffee, I used distress inks (in order) Antique Linen, Gathered Twigs, Walnut Stain and Ground Espresso. I liked my coffee, so I decided just to add the sleeve back (using a Starbuck’s sleeve). I edged with my Nougat Pitt Big Brush pen and added some gesso to the front of the sleeve. I also splattered my finished cup with black gesso.
My patterned paper is from a “Webster’s Pages” collection from many years ago. I found a small piece of ribbon to add, and also used that beautiful “Autumn” flower I wanted to use yesterday, with some bling from Queen & Co. I added some thin line black stickers on the top and bottom, but my sentiment didn’t fit right, so that can be added at a later date if I send it to someone.
Hopefully, tomorrow’s creation goes better. Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!
