Beach and Coffee

Happy Memorial Day.  We hope you are having a wonderful day with family and remembering those who sacrificed so much for our country.

So many families are spending this long weekend at the beach so I thought I would create a card with a beach theme but mixed it up with a coffee theme, too.  It is a vital part of my relaxing weekend.

The Coffee Background was inked with various Distress Inks to coordinate with the colors I planned to use for the sunset.  This was stamped first and then the same colors were sponged on top.  Darker blue and brown were sponged around the edges.

The Adirondack Sunset image was stamped in brown twice.  The first image was sponged with ink to coordinate with the Coffee background.  On the second image the sun was sponged with Distress Ink and the chair was colored with Copic Markers.  These were both fussy cut and layered onto the inked image.

Using dark brown Memento Ink, the “May your day be filled...” sentiment was stamped on a white rectangle background.  Distress Inks were sponged over and around it.  It was layered on blue, along with the Adirondack Sunset Image and then layered on top of the Coffee Background.  A small Sizzix coffee cup was die cut, sponged with ink, and added with fiber.

Have a wonderful week.
