Hello! Well, the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop is winding down. Today’s the last day and I can’t believe I was able to play along every day of the hop…thanks to my patient hubby! It’s been great fun – “thanks a latte” to the sponsors and everyone involved in this wildly popular event!! Here’s my final card:
Yesterday morning I watched a video that came in my Splitcoast Stamper’s email showing how to make a tie-dye background on a coffee filter. Mine’s not nearly as nice (especially technique) as the one in the video, but the colors really remind me of when I was growing up in the 70’s.
I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do with this after taping it to cardstock, but finally decided to emboss with my TH “On the Go” embossing folder. I came across some shaker cards from Queen & Co. that I bought last year at the Novi, MI, Megameet, and decided to use the one that’s like a polaroid picture. I thought one of the Hipsters would be fun to include and I hadn’t used the chicken yet, which was colored with distress inks and added inside of the shaker along with flower sequins. I know the chicken’s mostly covered up with the sequins so it’s hard to see, but I didn’t ink up the shirt and tie for a more informal look.
I decorated the outside by using the same embossing folder – I added DOX Broken China and spritzed with water. I also edged with DOX Vintage Photo.
My sentiment is from a free digital download last year from Verve, I believe. I foiled it in black and since there wasn’t room for a flower or bow, I added more flower sequins on the outside.
That’s it – thanks for stopping by and have an awesome weekend!!
