Vintage Coffee Card (Fairy Tale Challenge #186)

Hello everyone! :o)

It's time for a new challenge over at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

Our theme for this fortnight is #186, Kaffee und Kuchen / Coffee and Cake.

And here is my take on the challenge: Vintage Coffee Card.

To make this card, I used stamps from Jane's Doodles 'Coffee Time' stamp set.

I stamped coffee cups and pots randomly on a panel, for which I used Canson XL Mixed Media Paper.

I colored the panel in watercolor technique using only one Distress Ink Color: Ground Espresso. First I colored a background, covered images with paper towel pieces (imperfect masking) and splattered the panel. Then I colored images and left the panel dry on air.

After drying, I glued the panel on a white top folded card base and my card was finished.

I'm very satisfied how my card turned out. I achieved Monochrome Vintage look, just like I wanted. :o)

Card dimensions: 84 mm x 117 mm (3 5/16" x 4 5/8")

  • Jane's Doodles 'Coffee Time' stamp set
  • Canson XL Mixed Media Paper, 300 g
