SSC104 Treats of Friendship Coffee Stain Card

I just can't get enough of the CTMH Treats of Friendship Stamp Set.

I've had an idea "brewing" in the back of my mind for a while now and when I came across this challenge over at Sunday Stamps I knew it was the right design for my Coffee Stain Card.



I had already done up a bunch of the background papers last month using Rubbing Alcohol & CTMH Desert Sand Re-inkers.  It was really easy to do but a little messy but I managed to contain it by putting my cardstock in the bottom of one of my empty CTMH order boxes then do my stamping and paint brush splatters.



I used Kraft Cardstock as my base.  Then I inked the edges of my background piece with Desert Sand Ink.  I added a strip of Bronze Shimmer Trim with a piece of Glacier Extra-Thick Twine above it with a knot of Twine to the right. 

I stamped two of the coffee cup image and fussy cut the lid and label off of the White Daisy piece after colouring with ShinHan Clay & Mahogany Markers and glued it onto a piece of Jackson patterned paper.   The donut was stamped on Kraft cardstock and Blossom patterned paper.  I coloured the sprinkles and added glitter to the Blossom piece then attached it the Kraft donut.   The sentiment also comes from the Treats of Friendship Stamp Set and I stamped it in Black Ink onto a piece of Colonial White Cardstock that I had sponged with Desert Sand Ink around the edges.
