And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Life After Coffee

Hello friends...happy Friday!  I am not a coffee drinker. **GASP**  I do; however, enjoy making coffee cards for my friends who do, and I especially like using some of the new coffee themed stamps and dies released by Divinity Designs this month.  For those who NEED a cuppa before starting your day...this card is for you!
Creative Nugget:  Chocolate colored Distress inks were sponged onto a piece of mixed media paper and cut with a Pierced Rectangle Die.  After the inks dried, VersaMark ink was sponged through the Hills Stencil and clear embossed to trap the color under the embossing.  Water was then spritzed onto the panel and some of the oxide color removed from the areas that were not embossed to highlight the detail of the stencil on the background.  The stencil was then embossed onto a piece of paper from the Latte Love Paper Pad and the raised edges slightly sanded to bring out the detail.  This panel was also cut with the Pierced Rectangle Die and the Leafy Edged Borders Die. The Coffee Heartbeat, Cocoa & Coffee, and Perk Up dies were cut multiple times and layered to add the details to the card.  The coffee cups on the Coffee Heartbeat were cut off one of the layers, Colored with Copic Markers and pieced back onto the heartbeat for added color.  The sentiment from the Perk Up Stamp/Die Duo was stamped onto a Sentiment Strips die cut to finish the card.

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenge - Create Something with Autumn Colors
