Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Antique Rock

No automatic alt text available.
Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hard to believe it is time for another coffee lovers bloghop
I decided to decorate and make a coffee themed rock for this hop.

I chose this rock because of the flat surface. I liked the colors of gray and brown in the rock. It made me think of vintage images. I cleaned the rock with water and dried it off.

I chose some designer paper that had a vintage look. I stamped
STAMPlorations FRAMED TEACUPS
I cut some of the frame off so it would fit the rock.
I could have just added it like this and it would have been pretty, but I wanted to make it just a little bit MORE interesting.

 
 
I stamped the cups onto various designer papers.


 I then cut out the individual cups.


I glued the cups to the original stamped image.
See ... don't the additional patterns on the cups make it just a little MORE interesting?


I stamped the sentiment using
STAMPlorations ANYWHERE THERE"S COFFEE set

I then used Mod Podge to adhere them to the rock. I also added several layers of Mod Podge to seal the rock. I added gold metallic rub to enhance the rocks texture.
