Inkspiration Sketch Challenge #43

Inkspirations Challenges Guest Designer


This week is a sketch challenge from Makeesha and I'm very excited that I'm guest designer.


One of my favourite things to do (other then crafting) is to sit down at Gloria Jeans and enjoy a cappuccino. So for my card I have used woodgrain BG to represent wood panelling at the stores and also a strip of Newsprint DSP for the card marking magazine I love to read while drinking my coffee. The cups and have been embossed and watercoloured in early espresso, marina mist, crumb cake, cherry clobber and then spritzed. What do you think?


Card Recipe:
SU Cardstock: Early Espresso, cherry cobbler, crumb cake
SU Stamps: Morning cup and woodgrain BG
SU Inks: Early Espresso, Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobber
SU Other: black and clear embossing powder, neswprint DSP, Wide striped early espresso ribbon, blender pens, watercolouring paper, scallop trim border punch, spritzer and a vintage brad
