Yeah! Today I come home from Denver and the hubster will get his last card for this trip. This one is really outside of my comfort zone - it's messy! I'm not a fan of splatter, but when I saw this card on Rita's Creations, I knew I just had to lift it so I could use the new stamp set I got from Fiskars called Latte Love.
There's a fabulous stamp from Hero Arts that does the messy coffee stain circle, but I don't have that one, so I had to improvise with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink mixed with water. I mixed the two on my craft sheet and used the stem of a candle holder as my "stamp" to simulate the coffee cup ring. I sprayed the card with Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist (how appropriate is that name for this card?) and added a few extra larger drops. I then stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black and cut out the banner. After coloring the stamped coffee cup image with some Spectrum Noir markers, I fussy cut it out (the steam was not fun to cut) and added it to the card with some pop dots.
