Modern Coffee

Hi there, Jenny here on a Monday morning and I'm on the coffee again!!!
Yes I'm drinking it and also re-visiting the Coffee Date stamp set from MFT. 
Last time my card was retro and.... erm... quite bright!! This design is still colourful but has more of an abstract/modern  
edge to it and I was totally inspired by this picture on Pinterest...

 Those solid shapes of colour have such an impact and I knew I wanted to try 
it with this set straight away.

I arranged the images in my stamp press and used Memento ink to stamp them, that way I knew 
the black wouldn't smudge when I added the colour on top. I used strips of masking tape to make
 the random shapes and daubed on distress inks.
I had left the stamps mounted in the stamp press so I returned the panel of card to the exact same position 
and re-stamped the images in black Versafine ink to give a deeper black line.

The Mama Elephant Occasional Labels has a great choice of sentiments and they were perfectly sized to fit 
the space left. I stamped them on a scrap of white card and trimmed around them with a craft knife
 and ruler.... that way they look more like Dymo labels.


Thanks for stopping By :)
