Coffee Deep Impressions Card


I am having so much fun playing with techniques I learned from videos by Fran of Stampendous on U-Tube! Her Deep Impressions technique is my favorite currently, but I also used instant coffee on the background of this card after watching another video on that technique. After the instant coffee spray was dry, I sponged on the lines with distress ink and a stencil and stamped the coffee stains, steam and the perfect sentiment from Crackerbox Palace. Here is a closeup of the dimension and shine of the coffee cup:


Isn't that gorgeous? The embossing powder I used primarily was Aged Copper from Stampendous which is a combo of gold, copper and green/blue. I stamped with an awesome background stamp from Technique Junkies into the molten embossing powder. I finished the card by sprinkling distress ink mixed with water with a small paint brush for the random dots.

I will be teaching this technique at an upcoming local workshop. If interested, email me via the contact feature on the side of the blog.

I am entering this card in the "Take a Stamp" challenge at Craft Stamper Magazine and the Make it Colorful challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
