Happy Saturday!!! Yeah, I am spending it in my craft room listening to Pink radio on Pandora and thoroughly enjoying myself. I am arriving to the mixed media February challenge at the very, very end...but I wanted to submit this! Their challenge for February was red and wings for a twist. I am also submitting this to the Spring Coffee lover's blog hop .
I took some fun Teresa Collin stationary noted dp, the coffee encyclopedia page and some dark brown cardstock to create this. First, I wrinkled my encyclopedia page and then dragged distressed linen ink over it. The images are from an old Flourishes stamp set. I embossed the steam in brown. I chose some fun dp from the 6 x 6 pack to stamp the cup in versamark and emboss in brown, cut it out and paper pieced onto the encyclopedia page. The saucer was another piece of dp from the pack as well as the sentiment...they were both dragged through the linen ink pad. The sentiment edge was dragged through poppy parade as was the encyclopedia piece. I managed to get the wings in for the mixed media mojo challenge by adding a dragonfly brad at the top of the steam. A ribbon tab and a yummy, big chocolate ribbon. I used my craft knife to cut holes for the ribbon on either side of the cup. The red layer was embossed with the dots folder though it is hard to see here.
Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm!
