Coffee and color challenge card

 





This is my third card for the Spring Coffee Lovers Bloghop. I combined it with splitcoaststampers color challenge CC575



I used 2 Mark's Finest Papers sets called  OH BEANS and JAVA TIME. I stamped the coffee beans using black stazon ink. I colored with markers, cut them out and put a lot of Aleene's glue on top of each beans. It took awhile to dry but when it was done it gave them a glassy, shiny finish.



The faux wood on my card started as  a recycled piece of cardboard, glue and acrylic paint. I had to mix several different colors to get the mint color for the challenge. When the faux wood dried, I cut it into panels. I wanted to make it look like there were rusty nails. I used a stylus to make indentations and put copper inka gold for the rust and I put a dot with a black marker for the nail.

  19. I love the matte look the glue gives to the beans- it's a bit different than Glossy Accents, but such a fun effect. Love your color of your cup too! :)
