Impression Obsession DT Challenge

Well, I am back in the saddle again and thought I had better get back to posting. What better way to return to posting than to participate in an Impression Obsession Design Team Challenge? This time the theme was a color challenge, and we were to highlight the colors of "red, white, and blue."

I don't usually combine red, white, and blue unless I am making a patriotic card or a 4th of July card. I thought it would be good for me to try something different and make something that didn't fit into either of those two categories. Instead, I chose to highlight my new Sarah Phelps clear coffee set called CL231 More Coffee.

To make this card, I stamped the cup, sugar, and pot onto white cardstock using Majestic Blue VersaFine ink. I colored the coffee images with Prismacolor pencils and then added some brown watercolor pencil around them to look like a table. I then stamped the saying in the same blue ink and added some coffeebeans from the same clear set using Sepia VersaFine ink. To finish the card, I added some Bo Bunny patterned paper and added a red satin ribbon.

In a red, white, and blue mood? Check out what Daniela, Dina, Jeanne, and Julie have created for the challenge.
