Coffee and Friends Warm the Heart

Here's my card for this month's Reverse Confetti Sketch for You to Try.  It's been a while since I used my Reverse Confetti Be a Barista set, so I inked it up for the sketch.

I colored the mug image to match the colors in the delicate floral patterned paper I used to cover most of the card base.  The coffee was filled in with the set's solid image stamp and brown pigment ink.  After cutting out the cup, I adhered it to a cream circle using foam tape.  To accent it, I die cut a red heart using RC's Love Note die set and adhered it to the edge of the cup.

The image panel was matted on a dark brown circle, then layered on to a cream panel.  I tucked a strip of newsprint patterned paper underneath the image panel.  The sentiment was stamped in dark brown ink directly on the text patterned paper beneath a contrasting red cardstock strip.  I adhered the cream panel (and all of its layers!) to the card base.  I finished the design by adding a section of a cream pearl flourish extending out from the top of the cup to look like a bit of  "steam" from the hot beverage!

Materials Used:
Be a Barista stamp set, Confetti Cuts Love Note dies (Reverse Confetti); Memento Espresso Truffle ink, Memento Luxe Rich Cocoa ink (IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko); markers (Copic); Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip, and Real Red cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Front Porch 6x6 paper pad (Pebbles); circle dies (Spellbinders); cream pearl flourish (Want2Scrap); foam tape
