Just a sip of coffee

If you are looking for MFP wild animals blog hop, scroll down one more post. I had to make just one more coffee card for the SPRING COFFEE LOVERS BLOGHOP. The paper, butterfly and roses were on my desk asking to be made into a card. I made my coffee cup by cutting a cup out of brown cardstock. I rubbed copper inka gold metallic rub over the surface. I dry embossed it with my cuttlebug. I then took black distress ink and went over the raised areas. Two different types of lace made my table cloth. I added brads, twine, roses, pearls and ribbon. I think my butterfly just landed to try a tiny sip of coffee. I don't mind sharing a drop or two, but if he wants more he is going to have to go get his own cup.

  5. What a beauty MariLynn - I have used black gesso over the card, emboss, and then rub the gold over - gives a slightly different effect, but the two tone colours are stunning as is your cup. Love your lace.
