We have a guest designer for the challenge in The Playground this time - our talented prefect Sarn who has made a super coffee themed card, well worth visiting to see the card and find out what mischief might be afoot 😉. A great Tattered Lace prize on offer this time and in duplicate so double the chance of being drawn out of the hat if you take part.
I raided my 'creams and browns' scrap box to make this card as well as digging out an image stamp which has lain unused for longer than I care to admit and in fact it could be that this is the first time it's been inked - can't really remember using it, but we are talking a good few years here 😉. Background paper is part of a sheet from a pad of A4 designs (I always keep the bits and pieces tucked inside the pack once I've cut into a piece); the darker brown piece was a small strip from the oddments box and I selected some offcuts of cream for the stamping. The Wise Gents were stamped and then sponged with Tea Dye ink; the tall cream strip had the numbers stamped in black along with more stamping using a sepia ink and finally the sentiment outline and words were lined up and stamped - using the Misti of course. A stray metal watch charm was added as a finishing touch.
