Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Distress Ink Background

card 5

Hello and welcome back to my coffee series.  This card was made with printed image, which I fussy cut and dipped into my puddled Distress Inks.  I sponged the cup with brown ink to blend it in with the background more.

card 2

The background was made with a darker mix of inks.  I stamped over the cut, dry panel.  I die cut the red Tim Holtz lace die from another inky paper I made to ground the image.  I use recycled file folders for my Distress Ink backgrounds.  They are perfect!

card 3

You will be seeing lots of my Verve Stamps coffee die this week.  I so love it!  I added a Prima flower and some die cut swirlies and twine.

Okay, I want to know about the lace background... Was it from Tim? Tammy Tutterow has a new embossing folder that sold out (!) at Funkie Junkie that looked like this... I need it in my life, Autumn... I do. Love this card, dearie.
