Hi there! It’s been a rough week. I was away last week, and then I got back and caught a nasty cold. I’m still not feeling 100%, but felt well enough to do a little crafting today. I decided to do a coffee fall theme card using the masking technique for my first card back.
On a 6″x4.5″ scrap piece of white Bristol paper, I stamped the coffee cup and heart steam with black Versafine ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I wanted to do a little watercoloring, so for the first time, I used masking fluid to mask the cup and steam. I stamped the leaves with Archival black ink so the cup has something to sit on.
I did some partial ink blending through a brick wall stencil with Rusty Hinge distress ink. I colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Then I die cut the Bristol piece with a Stitched Rectangle die.
I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in black. The word coffee was crelated using the camouflage die cut technique. I die cut two extra of each letter from white cardstock to stack them for dimension. I wanted to keep it simple so decided on no embellishments. The stitched panel was mounted onto a white top folding card base to finish.
