Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Let's Hear it for the Boys!

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a masculine project, something a boy or man would be happy to receive. Well, what man doesn't love his morning coffee? I paper pieced the Coffee Aroma image (it is available in red rubber or as part of a fun clear set), adding some shading and highlights with Prismacolor pencils. The sentiment is from another clear set called More Coffee.The background panel was embossed with a Fiskars texture plate, then sanded, and overstamped with the Wood Grain Cover-a-Card.

Be sure to check out these other designers' blogs for inspiration -

  2. Wonderful card! I would not have guessed that you paper-pieced the stamp. It looks great, I love that you steam swirls sill have the lined paper in them. I also like the frayed cotton with the screw-top brad, and the word leaded. :) Also like the background. I guess I like the whole card design! Thank you for sharing!
