Yesterday (yes, the rain started at the weekend.....ugh) I was able to finally think of designs for this months Altenew Inspiration Challenge. These aren't colours I would usually use together so it stumped me a bit but now have three different ideas I will try to whip up before the end of the week.
This first idea came to mind because of all the wonderful coffee cards that I've seen lately (I haven't made my Coffee Blog Hop card yet but don't count me out....) and I still hadn't used this stamp set:
I love anything 'retro' inspired and can just imagine these colours as part of some funky tea set. It was wonderful to colour while watching Alvin and the Chipmunks - Road Trip and love the sketchiness of these images.
To create the table I just cut a strip of wood veneer paper and adhered along the bottom of the card front. The cups and coffee pot were all stamped in black on some white CS, coloured with my Faber Castell pencils and then fussy cut out. I popped them on the table with some foam tape, stamped the sentiment and added some co-ordinating sequins. Its a simple scene but love all that white behind the images, makes them the star!!
The stamps are all from Altenew 'Coffee Love', the wood veneer paper is from Papervine and the sequins from Neat and Tangled.
I'm part way thru my second card and just changed my mind for the third, so fingers crossed I can get them made tonight or tomorrow. At least I can work into the night without having to worry about waking up early for school. Bliss!
