Welcome! Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm here with this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where our theme is, Food and/or Drink. I created a fun card with lots of texture and wishful thinking. Don't you wish Latte's were only 5 cents? I put together a tutorial on how I created the background for some inspiration. Enjoy!
I start by cutting a 4-3/4" x 6-3/4" piece of Neenah Desert Storm card stock.
I add the Tim Holtz Linen mini stencil with Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste.
When the embossing paste is completely dry, I make a mixture of Walnut Stain Distress Spray and water onto a craft mat and run the panel through it.
When the Walnut Stain ink is dry, I make a mixture of Broken China Distress Oxide and water on my craft mat and run the panel through it.
I continue running the panel through the ink mixture until I'm happy with the outcome.
I stencil on the Tim Holtz Typo with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide in random areas on the panel. (Note: I should have used Vintage Photo Archival Ink because the Distress Oxide eventually soaked into the background so much that it became almost invisible.)
Next, I ink the edges with Potting Soil Archival Ink.
I complete the panel by splattering some Walnut Stain Distress Oxide mixed with water onto the panel and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink mixed with water using the Tim Holtz Splatter Brush.
I cut the necessary pieces for my focal point using velum, corrugated cardboard and Neenah Desert Storm card stock. The 5 cent piece is the circle cut from the Tim Holtz Fresh Brewed Bigz die set and stamped with a stamp from the Tim Holtz Remnants stamp set.
I ink the circle, cup and sleeve with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.
I add Picket Fence Distress Paint to the middle section of the circle where I will place the coffee cup. This will make the cup stand out and draw the eye in.
To complete the card I add some burlap, flowers from my stash, gears and other metal pieces. I then add the word Latte using the Simon Says Stamp Game Tile Letters stamp set. I create the word using black card stock, Versamark embossing ink and Hero Arts white embossing powder. I adhere my completed card panel onto a 5" x 7" piece of Simon Says Stamp Dark Chocolate card stock and my card is done.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the process I used to create my card for the Food and/or Drink challenge and that you join us for this fun challenge by adding your project to Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge Blog for your chance to win a $50 gift voucher to their amazing store.
