CREATE YOUR OWN BACKGROUND


For my card I used Yupo paper and Alcohol ink and created this background. I love the colors and didn't want to cover them too much so I used My favorite things happy birthday die and notes. I added them to the card and called it quits.  I love the black against the background. Perfect for that guy..

Our letter this challenge is
C  - for Coffee and or Chocolate


For my card I went coffee.. not that chocolate is not a favorite too.. but I don't have any candy stamps.. I used Stampin up stamps and ink. and stamped out the cup. I cut it out 3 times so I could get some depth and strength to the piece. I then took a piece of Kraft card stock and Ranger ink and added the brown to the kraft to give it some brown chocolate look.. I took Perfect Pearls and added the light splatters. I then took some Mission Gold brown water colors and splattered the dark. I set it aside to dry.  I had this little piece of scrap dotted dp so using Paper Trey Ink die cut this strip out and then added the image with some foam dots. I think I got the coffee and chocolate in a round about way.. yum
