Coffee & Flowers
Hello there and happy Thursday, Lydia here with you today.
I have gone for a monochromic look, I thought the browns would go with the coffee theme.
For the floral images I have used Vintage Roses and Vintage Flowers. I stamped three of the large leaf stem from Vintage Roses onto the card base with Caramel Toffee, Paper Bag and Dark Chocolate Crisp Ink for the three layers.
I then stamped the coffee pot from Coffee Love onto white card and cut with the coordinating dies. I then stamped the same coffee pot onto some patterned paper. I stamped some leaves onto the bottom of the pot using the same colours before adding a light mica powder over the top- this helps the leaves blend a little more into the 'pattern' on the pot. I then cut this patterned piece out and stuck it on top of the image on the die-cut piece.
I stamped a rose (Vintage Roses) and some leaves (Vintage Flowers) using the same inks and then die cut these with the matching dies. I then assembled the pieces on the card base with foam pads. To finish I added a sentiment from Coffee Talk.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you like the mix of flowers and coffee!
Hugs, Lydia x
