Just a reminder that there’s still time to play at our challenge over at Creative With Stamps where the theme is “Boys to Men”. As the 1st post I did was for a boy, I thought I’d make one for the men this time!
When I saw these stamps called Dark Coffee by Becca at Stamplorations, I just had to have them even though I don’t drink coffee! I even got my first coffee stencil, (and my only coffee item in my stash) from them to go with it!
To create the card, I first masked off the area where my coffee cup was going to be, before sprinkling some Gamboge & Violet Brushos paint powder around the masked area. To activate the powders, I spritz some water on it and watch the magic happen! Once it was dry, I taped my stencil down making sure to line up with the area which was not painted and added some inks through the stencil. I coloured in the coffee area with my black Zig clean color real brush marker.
I then removed the stencil and coloured in the coffee cup in a sort of watercolor “pop art” way with my Zigs. I’ve never done anything like this before but just let my brush go free. I must admit I really like the finished result! Once it was dry, I stamped the sentiment with Versafine black ink.
Don’t you just love the sentiment! It certainly is true in our house! 😆 So I hope you’ll play along with us at Creative With Stamps and you might just win a $25 Gift Certificate prize from our sponsor EyeConnect Crafts!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
