Coffee Makes Me...

Hello all,

I'm so happy to be your part of the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps release party blog hop.   I'm using their Coffee Makes Me stamp.  I paired this stamp with one of my favorite techniques.  I used Distress Oxide inks to create a spilled coffee background panel.  This is an easy technique to try and I love the way neat patterns and texture you get when they dry.

I hope you will watch the real-time video.  You will hear my thought process and see my mistakes and how I fix them.   I'm not perfect, if you are new to my blog.  You will find I'm all about keeping crafting real.   Below you will find photos, a list of copic markers, and a link to the video on youtube.

  1. Love what you did with the distress oxides for the background but what really shines are the Blue Knight stamps and your copic coloring! Cane here from your You Tube to get more info on the copic colors used. Great inspiration

  7. Love your card. I am really getting into the coffee background as well as coffee/latte or hot chocolate. Read somewhere that you could also use old left over coffee that has dried up. Just add a little water. It pretty much has the same effect.
