Coffee Anyone?

It is cold, cold, cold here in Virginia. As I am typing, I am listening to the sleet hitting the window and thinking about the sheet of ice that is supposed to be on my car in the morning. Sigh. I know I am going to need coffee....a lot of coffee.

So, on that note, I decided to post another of the new Impression Obsession Leigh Hannan designs. It is definitely one of my favorites. I stamped the coffee pot/cup onto white cardstock with black Memento ink and colored it with an assortment of Copic markers. I wanted the steam to be a grayish color, so I used both the W1 and W3 Copic markers. I chose the warm greys because they have a hint of brown to them, and I knew they would match the pot and background papers better than the Cool Grey markers would. Speaking of background paper, isn't it great? I have had this paper from Flair Designs for a long time and never used it. Nothing is more satisfying that using a supply you have had for a long time!

Have a warm day everyone (even if you have to buy your warmth at a coffee shop).

Gorgeous! That paper is perfect for the card. Hope you stay warm today... good luck getting the ice off your car.
