Coffee Thanks

This week's Pals Paper Arts challenge was a colour challenge, which was truly challenging for me since they were colours I don't often use. I enjoyed it in the end and felt happy with the card - might even use the colour combo again.

The coffee stamp is a HastingsArt stamp from my local scrapbooking shop. I stamped the cup in Stazon ink and coloured the dots in Always Artichoke then stamped the steam in Cajun Craze. I masked the cup then stamped the distressed houndstooth background over it in Crushed Curry, then rounded the corners and mounted it on Cajun Craze.

Paper: Always Artichoke, Always Artichoke DSP, Cajun Craze, Whisper White
Stamps: HastingsArt Coffee Cup, CTMH Distressed Houndstooth background stamp, Hero Arts Thank You Stamp.
Ink: Stazon, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze.
Other: Corner Rounder, Linen Twine.
