There are some fab new images at DigiStamp Boutique, and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them as soon as they landed in my inbox... except it was much better in my head than it is on my card! There's a sketch this week at Less is More so I've followed that... I missed last week, as when I'd made my card I hated it so much I couldn't even face blogging it!
I've used the fab Coffee break set - lots of coffee related images and perfect sentiments to go with them too. I layered the cup images onto some digi paper (from Raspberry Rd) in PagePlus, flipping the flowery cup the other way. Added some teeny gems and a touch of shimmer on the steam using a sakura clear stardust pen. Then cut some frames using nestie dies and added a heart that was a waste piece from another die cut. The sentiment was printed directly onto the card blank and is from the same set - love the font :o)
I only realised after taking the photo, that I should have added some shading under the cups to ground them - not sure why I forgot, I normally do that automatically. I also managed to break one of my Big Shot plates AGAIN! I think it's the 3rd time I've broken one, and I was only cutting a circle - not forcing it or anything... no idea why it keeps happening. So off to Hobbycraft tomorrow, and if they've not got them I'll have to get them online and manage without the Big Shot for a couple of days... sob!
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend :o)
