Monday ... need coffee to start my week


 I wanted to make a tall and skinny easel card for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch 417,.

It is also for the Coffee Lovers Fall Blog Hop.

Last week I made a card with stacked cups with gold leaves. To make it fit on my card I cut the top cup off. It was sitting on my desk this morning when I started crafting. I used white and tan cardstock for this card. The colorful background was done with markers, water and gold acrylic paint. I used gold metallic rub around the edges and on the gold panel. 

The stamps I used for this card were from 2 different MFP sets.



 I used versamark ink to make the coffee stains on the card using the rings images from JAVA TIME.
