This is my fifth post in the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 2021!
Remember my ATC on yesterday where I had spring flowers - 'snowdrops'?
I decided to translate this onto a journal page.
I really like the technique of adding the same colour to a painted background - for instance stamping in black on a painted black page. Well, here I painted a page in brown acrylic. I then used my CAS-UAL Friday (Super Sponsor) stencil 'By the beans' to add another layer.
At this stage I had no idea as to what to do next... but we went out for coffee...
So the next step was to add paint pen stems and leaves and coffee cup blooms. These are a Joy Clair (Super Sponsor) stamp, stamped with Versafine Clair Pinecone ink on white with a touch of marker.
I added the Stampendous (Sponsor) dinosaur stamp, stamped in Versafine Clair Verdant, with a little extra marker, and cut out.
I printed the sentiment on the computer, trimmed the words, added a little distress and put them in place.
I am also going to add these makes to
Leigh's Spring hop Day 17 . Spring-blog-hop-2021
The Stampendous stamp set 'Creature Tricks' was a prize from one of Leigh's hops.
Finally I will add it to Lost Coast Portal To Creativity Challenge 118 'Hats' - note I added a coffee cup hat to the dinosaur.
