A Brew Will See You Through

It's Friday--finally--so a coffee themed card seemed appropriate.  This one was inspired by the current challenge at Inspired by All the Little Things.

A Brew Will See You Through card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Right at Home
I started off with a woodgrain background panel to mimic the look of the mug rack in the inspiration photo.  I added a single mug, stamped with an image from Right At Home's Cup of Joy stamp set.  The mug was stamped on cream and shaded just a bit with Copic markers to bring in the neutral shades of the mugs in the photo. 

For the sentiment, I stamped "a brew will see you through" from the coordinating How Have You Bean? sentiment set in brown pigment ink on a kraft cardstock strip.  I added it to the panel, tucking one end underneath the mug image.  To complete the design, I added a section of a taupe pearl flourish to the top of the mug as a plume of steam.

Materials Used:
Cup of Joy and How Have You Bean? stamp sets, Cup of Joy dies (Right at Home); Memento Tuxedo Black and Memento Luxe Rich Cocoa and Wedding Dress inks (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Copic); Kraft cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Necessities:  Wood 6x6 paper pad (My Mind's Eye); taupe pearl flourish (Want2Scrap); foam tape
