All the Warms - coloured pencil, Perfect Pearl "embossing"

Ahhhh... who doesn't like a nice hot cup of coffee on a cold nearly winter morning? All the warms, all the way down to your toes. My card features a stamp from House Mouse and Friends coloured with Koh-i-Nor and backed with a Stampendous background faux embossed with Perfect Pearls.

Putting It Together

It's been rather chilly here, so a dunk in a cup of coffee is so very tempting.

I stamped the image on Mi Tientes with brown ink.

I used Koh-i-Noor to colour.

For the background, I stamped Perfect Medium on a kraft panel.

I then brushed Perfect Pearls over the panel for a faux embossing.

I love the subtle shine of Perfect Pearls.

I rounded the corners on the coffee background, added a mat of patterned paper, a bit of ribbon, and a studded gem putting it all on a kraft card base. The mousey image is popped up with foam mounting tape.

Inside, I used a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp that I got for free with an order.
