Hello kind followers. Many of you who personally know me recognize that this card was really made with me in mind. I definitely HAVE to have my coffee when I get up in order to wake up and get going. I enjoy coffee. I enjoy the smell and the taste.
This week's sponsor is Bugaboo Digital Stamps, and here is our sketch:
This was a fun sketch. It is easy and quick but not totally CAS. The fishtail elements add some dimension and a nice focal point to draw your eye to the image.
My image is called Mis JJ Coffee.
The image comes in both b&w and pre-colored. I enjoy coloring, but for the past several months, I've really enjoyed using pre-colored or stamped images using one ink color only. I've been able to make some really nice cards in less time which has helped with my busy schedule.
I started with a piece of blue cardstock to create my base card. I added the piece of stripe background (from my scrap bag). I then matted my pre-colored image on a piece of the blue and adhered it to the center of the card front. I cut the two fish tail pieces from the blue using a Memory Box fishtail banner die.
You could add a bit more bling if you wanted by adding gems to the fishtail or replacing the fishtail pieces with another design -- take a look at some of the things the other DT members did with theirs by visiting the Tuesday Morning Blog.
