One Stop Craft - 4 December 2010

Well I followed the recipe for Stampin' at the Week-end challenge and decided to use card candy instead of buttons - what a silly billy eh.  I wanted to do a funny invite to a friend to come around for coffee so when I saw this Meljen's Designs image I thought it would be perfect.  This also fits in with the challenge over at One Stop Craft this week of "coffee or tea inspiration".  As we are both love purple I made the card with scraps of paper/card in the colour purple.  I've made to make two cards today out of the purple scraps - none really left now so if I want a purple card I might have to print something out!!!  I have coloured the image with Promarkers, put puffy paint, left overnight to dry, heated to make puffy and then added some brown on top with a Sakura Stardust brown coloured pen to show to cocoa on top of cappuccino.  The card is then simply finished off with some card candy, hand-written message (don't do that very often as my writing isn't very good) and some square gems which I must have had about five years when I first started cardmaking - nice to see that they've found a home on a card now.

This card also fits the following challenges:

Top Tip Tuesday - Anything goes
Paperplay - Monochrome
Delicious Doodles - Use a digi
One Stitch at a Time - Old and new - new image but old square gems that I've had since I first started making cards over 5 years ago!!!
Craft Your Passion - Anything goes
The Crafty Pad - Anything goes.
